  • Olive oil from Crete
    This method is still used today even though nearly every family owns a machine This consists of a long pole with prongs on the top and which is connected to a motor This makes the harvesting very much easier but it will always remain a time consuming process Sharing of the work is usually the same and as family unity is held in high esteem every member takes part The women see that the first nets are laid out under the trees so that the men can start to work with the machines The collecting of the olives is again womens work They free the olives from the roughest leaves before they are packed in sacks and are ready to be transported to the olive oil factory After so much work it is hard to avoid being hungry Before midday the small meal is limited and can consist of some bread hardboiled eggs and tomatoes or cucumbers A Raki as refreshment helps to wash it down In the afternoon comes the main meal which is mostly grilled meat salad and home made wine Some of you will probably think and for this they need so many months But even though not every Cretan has the same number of trees and they grow without making many demands they still have to be cared for so that they will produce a rich crop for the next harvest The trees are cut back taking away not only small branches The inner branches are cut so that the remaining foliage looks like a crown and can grow fully again OLIVE OIL Technical development has not stopped at the oil factories Where before the millstones were turned by hand which afforded a great deal of strength or by donkeys modern machines stand there today These days there are two different methods of production either using machine driven millstones or high speed centrifuges so that fruit and oil are spun and separated One thing remains the same with both methods the olives have to be washed first to remove the remaining leaves and twigs Cretan olive oil has a first class quality which has continually improved over the last 17 years The consumption per person stands on average at 29 kilos a year Olive oil is the main nutritional factor in Cretan cuisine and is held as the elixir of life Todays research confirms that Cretans have the highest life expectancy of all Europeans because of the extensive use of the oil Olive oil has therapeutic effects on stomach ulcers relieves stomachache and helps digestion Because of the excessive use of olive oil incidents of cancer are very few The pro vitamin A and vitamin E offer protection for the skin Reduces the formation of gallstones and shows positive results in the relief of bilious colic Has a positive effect on growth and bone structure in children In the fight against Diabetes plays an important role in nutrition For preparation or cooking of meals it is
