Morgenster's Black Olive paste is made by grinding cured, stoned olives to a smooth paste. Sometimes confused with tapenade, this olive paste is made with the addition of a little sea salt and some Morgenster Extra Virgin Olive oil. It can easily be converted into a traditional tapenade with the addition of chopped anchovy and garlic – or make your very own version of tapenade by adding one or two of your favourite ingredients - try roasted bell peppers, finely chopped lemon zest, chilli, or chopped flat leaf parsley.

|Tasting Note||Unmistakably olive and yet often enjoyed by people who don't eat olives. Black Olive paste has a higher oil content than its Green counterpart, caused by the riper olives. The piquant flavours can be used to enhance the taste of other ingredients like cheese, cold meats and vegetables.|
