What Is Pomace?

The dictionary has a pretty simple and spot-on definition for Pomace. Lets take a look:

"The dry or pulpy residue of material (such as fruit, seeds, or fish) from which a liquid (such as juice or oil) has been pressed or extracted. 2 : something crushed to a pulpy mass." Source

Like I said, it's pretty spot on.  When it comes to olives, the pomace is the remaining pulp or the solids of the olive fruit, skin and pit after the initial oil has been crushed and spun. This initial crushing and spinning process produces the higher grades of extra virgin and virgin olive oils. 

But pomace doesn't only exist with olives. You can also have pomace made up of the remains of grapes after making wine, and pomace of lots of other types of fruit.
