souri black olives 400g


discover the taste of Lebanese olives

There’s a huge difference between Zejd’s souri black olives and commercial varieties.
Picked later in the harvest, souri black olives are cured in brine, with their stones intact.
The result is a juicy, “meaty” tasting olive. A little softer than Zejd green cracked souri olives, the flavour adds depth, along with texture, to your dishes.

to serve

Decant into a bowl with a teaspoon of brine, a squeeze of lemon and a little Zejd extra virgin olive oil to make them shine.

They make a wonderful addition to a healthy Lebanese breakfast of labneh, za’atar, cucumbers, tomatoes, fresh mint and flat breads.

Refrigerate after opening.

Olives bruise easily, so harvesting by hand, although time consuming and expensive, means the olive is less damaged and therefore more healthy. The olive harvestharvesting team in Beino are experts in their field, having worked for most of their lives with olives. Harvesting by hand means the tree roots are put under less pressure than when harvesting is done by machine, so the tree remains stronger and healthier. Souri black olives are picked later in the harvest, when they are “riper”.


An olive picked from the tree is inedible, it’s the oleuropein, an active compound, which makes them bitter. Souri black olives are salted to draw out the bitter compound, and then washed and left in brine to intensify the flavour. Packed full of antioxidants and vitamin E, they have important anti-inflammatory benefits. Olives are also a good source of monounsaturated fats.


Importing a large jar of olives is, we believe, better value for our customers. While they are delicious eatenprawns with arak from a bowl with a slice of lemon or two and a teaspoon of olive oil, they are wonderful in recipes too. For an easy to cook dish, try prawns with arak where the saltiness and fruity taste of souri black olives makes this simple dish really impressive.

Once the olives have been eaten, this jar has a second life. Tall and elegant, the label peels off really easily. We love the fact that it makes such a good storage jar for nuts and dried fruit, lentils or chickpeas or even dog treats! What will you use it for?dog treats
