The new Odysea’s Marinated Artichoke Quarters, a is a rather clever resealable pouch full of tender pieces of artichoke marinated in extra virgin olive oil, lemon and herbs.
Ready to eat, these artichoke quarters are ideal for antipasti, and a great addition to salads, sauces and risottos. The resealable pouch means you don’t have to eat them all at once, although you may do!
Also, now available in Sainsbury’s is Odysea Preserved Beldi Lemons.
Made using Egyptian lemons, these have an intense citrus flavour unlike any other. They are ideal for adding to roasted meats or potatoes, and even better when finely sliced and added to a salad. Of course, any tagine is going to benefit hugely from preserved lemons, too
A versatile product also featuring in Sainsbury’s is Odysea’s Sautéed Mushrooms. Packed out with button mushrooms and native herbs, these Sautéed Mushrooms are an easy way to pack huge flavour into all kinds of dishes.
Eat them on their own, add them to a risotto, or add to pasta sauce – whichever you choose, these mushrooms are exceptionally flavoursome and a delicious addition to any dish.
The new products join Odysea’s existing range of extra virgin olive oils, balsamic vinegars, Greek hand-picked olives in olive oil, Greek honey, and ready-to-eat appetisers based on traditional Greek recipes, most of which will be sited in Odysea’s new space within the Speciality Ingredients section at Sainsbury’s.
Also new are:
Odysea Aubergine Mezedip -a thick dip with the classic smoky flavor of aubergines, based on the traditional Greek recipe for ‘Melitzanasalata’, Odysea Flame Roasted Red & Yellow Peppers - vibrant red & yellow peppers flamed roasted on the day they are harvested. Odysea Big Halkidiki Pitted Olives - really big, green pitted olives; a classic Greek variety, perfect for cooking with or eating straight from the jar
Plus there’s Odysea Big Kalamata Pitted Olives - naturally black with a distinct almond shape, this is the classic olive for a Greek salad and perfect for cooking with or eating straight from the jar. Odysea Date Molasses - a thick, velvety smooth syrup with a deep, treacly sweetness.
Drizzle on top of porridge, yoghurt and ice-cream, blitz in smoothies or use instead of maple syrup on top of pancakes and French toast. A healthier choice and natural sweetener for cakes, cookies & energy snacks.
And don’t forget Odysea Organic Pressed Heirloom Tomatoes - vine ripened, hand picked organic tomatoes grown on a family farm in central Greece. These pressed tomatoes retain a wonderful ‘old fashioned’ aroma and flavor not found in mass produced tomato products.
