We wanted to keep production local, so we partnered up with the Women’s Cooperative of Parakila to help us make this recipe on an industrial scale and bottle it. Through this partnership, we are giving much needed employment to local women who may be financially vulnerable.
Sweet Olive Jam with Cinnamon and Greek Mountain Tea
This is the second jam in our line, with yet more innovative pairings of local herbs and spices.
This jam was inspired by a local hot tea beverage from the village of Agiassos called Kaynari, which is said to boost energy and help fight against the common cold. The unique recipe is a secret blend of eight spices that has been passed along by word of mouth over the years. Our Kaynari mixture contains cinnamon, cloves, mountain tea, cardamom, and others.
This jam is made by blending organic green olives with the Kaynari mixture, Greek mountain tea, cinnamon, orange, lemon juice, and brown sugar. All ingredients are natural and there are no artificial preservatives.
