Just Olives News 06.09.2023 | The Late Summer is Coming!

The late summer is coming!

Dear Olive Oil Friend,

The hot summer months are over and autumn has already announced itself. Even though it still gets really nice and warm during the day, it cools down again at night. We hope you enjoyed the summer and are looking forward to the days of September as much as we are. After slowing down over the summer, life has picked up again, and we are already racing towards the start of this year's olive harvest.

The olives have grown magnificently over the summer and if it continues this way over the next few weeks, nothing will stand in the way of another excellent vintage of the best olive oil. This year's harvest will start in mid-October and we will be back at our farmers in Tuscany at the end of October to taste this year's olive oil and place all the orders.

We are already so excited about this year's olive oil - are you as excited as we are? :-)


Delicious basil pesto!

You ask and we answer!

Many of you have asked us what our favourite recipe for homemade pesto is.

That's why we're sharing with you our favourite recipe for basil pesto with your organic olive oil from Just Olives - the main ingredient that, in our opinion, makes this pesto truly irresistible! ;-)

The ingredients:

  • 75g basil

  • 50g pine nuts

  • 50g parmesan

  • 1 garlic clove

  • 40g Just Olives organic olive oil

  • Salt and pepper to taste

Put all the ingredients in a large blender and blend until you get a nice creamy pesto.

If necessary, add a little more olive oil if the consistency is too firm, and your new favourite basil pesto is ready! :-)
