"Water Olive Oil" An Antique Olive Oil Production

  27.November.2010 - Antakya

 

Only machinery is a millstone pulled by a horse. Crushed and pressed olives are washed with hot water and hand press is made. Olive oil accumulated in the pool is picked skillfully into the large tanks for a rest period. At the end of production olive pits are collected to the big bags for heating source, in winter.

The quality of the olive oil which I taste was "excellent"
