The ideal size for everyday home use, these pitted Spanish Manzanilla Olives are one of the world’s most abundant olives; they originated in Sevilla, Spain. A green olive with a briny, nutty flavour, the Manzanilla Olive is usually the one found stuck with a toothpick in Martini glass.
The high yield of the Manzanilla olive tree goes some way to accounting for its popularity. While it still takes until its fifth year to bear fruit and alternates every other year in fruition, the Manzanilla tree compensates with its volume per tree.
Harvest of the Spanish Manzanilla Olive begins in October and extends through November with crops reaching an excess of 170,000 metric tons.
Cured in the tradition of Spanish olives, this variety is first treated with caustic soda, or lye, for de-bittering. This process lasts up to 10 hours, then followed by a thorough rinsing and finished by a brine fermentation that can last up to three months.

“Our Fuego wood oven has transformed our restaurant! As a piece of kit, it is extremely versatile and controllable, allowing us to roast all of our meats and vegetables in the wood burning oven as well as using it as a charcoal grill during service. The flavour of everything coming out of the Fuego clay pizza oven is incredible due to the amazing smoky, charred tones added to the smell and taste of everything that’s cooked in it. It is not expensive to run as all the kiln-dried wood we use heats the wood fired pizza oven pretty quickly and it retains its temperature really well, only needing to add logs to the fire a few times over the course of service.”
“We wanted a traditional wood oven that ticked lots of boxes, for us it had to be made of brick for the authentic feel, have amazing functionality and great quality. Our Fuego clay pizza oven ticks them all. Our pizza nights are such a fantastic feature for the guests that stay in our holiday cottages and it’s a great way of bringing friends and family together for making those special memories. Highly recommended”
“The traditional methods used within its construction and the unrivalled ability to retain heat have thoroughly impressed us. It has been a welcome addition to our BBQ and live music events. We cannot recommend the Fuego brand enough and it has been extremely popular with our chefs and customers alike.”
