Eliopsomo (Olive bread ) from Pelion
The olive bread of Pelion is a type of bread with olives (without the pit) mixed in the dough giving the strong aroma and flavor of oil to the light brown loaves.
Olive bread is made with soft flour, yeast, ferment, water and olives. The olive bread of Pelion is the traditional bread of the villages of Mt. Pelion and is generally baked before other varieties of bread. Today it is mainly a ‘tourist’ product prepared in “traditional” bakeries in many villages of Pelion.
It is served warm when the aroma of oil is particularly strong.
