Penna Gourmet Foods, Grower, Packer and Processor of Gourmet Olives



I want to talk to you today about Olives.  Most of you know that I am a strong supporter of local businesses.  While that is my first love, my close second is supporting family owned businesses.  This is where Penna Gourmet Olives comes in. Maurice and Cindy Penna are a husband and wife team of olive enthusiasts!  You know what they say, pursue in life anything you are passionate about and will do well at it.  That exactly what Penna is doing.  Penna grows, processes and packages their olives right on their 100 acre land known as M&CP Farms.  In fact, M&CP Farms are the only farmers that handle the olives from from the tree to the package.

My kids LOVE olives!

My husband and I are Alton Brown enthusiasts, but you knew that already right?  Well did you know that Alton had an episode on curing your own olives? Penna was one of his recommended sources for fresh olives.  In fact Penna actualy tells you how to cure your own fresh olives right here. Go ahead and read it.  Don't you think it would be cool to cure your own fresh olives?


Penna Gourmet Foods Fresh Olives are available starting around the 
middle of September (weather permitting)
I fondly recall olives being served at every special meal at our house growing up.  My Italian mother's side of the family always enjoyed the black dried olives cured with olive oil.  My mother would toss in some EVOO and spice it up with red pepper flakes.  Olives are well know for being high in fat but olives fit nicely into our new Paleo diet!  Now that the adults of our house are 100% Paleo, we enjoy olives a lot more than we used to.  All the goodness, none of the weight gain! ;-)
