NYONS- The Tanche variety of olives from Nyons are a specific shade of brown, almost black, and are finely wrinkled. They are hand-picked in November and December and then sorted according to their intended use. Olive oil is produced only from the smallest olives, while the bigger ones can be eaten on their own, as appetisers or used in salads or omelettes
The olives have a mildly salty and pleasantly bitter taste. They are commonly dry-cured in salt, to pull the moisture and bitterness out of them. Olives noires de Nyons pair nicely with cheese, almonds, onions and a variety of spices.
