Piri piri olives
Yet another impulse buy at Morrisons, i should never go in there when i’m hungry as i always end up buying snacks…usually olives or nuts and usually containing some sort of chilli.
Morrisons usually have a great selection of olives and i hadn’t seen these before, these looked lovely and the bright red chunks of chilli caught my eye.
I couldn’t even wait until i got home to start munching on them, so i cracked open the pot, that’s when i noticed whole garlic cloves and whole red chillis, so i immediately expected them to pack a punch. I wasn’t disappointed either, the olives were huge, they were sweet and juicy and didn’t have too much oil on like so many do. They were stuffed with chopped peppers and garlic which gave them the most amazing yet simple flavour, The chilli was enough to make my lips tingle even before eating the whole chillis.
I have kept the garlic to use in pasta as it should give it a bit of extra flavour and im not one for eating garlic whole.
I would certainly recommend these to anyone who loves olives.
Chilli Up North Verdict: Not cheap but very tasty, well balanced and juicy – 9/10 (heat 8/10 if you eat the chillis)
