We love olives! Any colour, stuffed or unstuffed, marinated or plain, pitted or unpitted, Italian or Greek (well, we do favour the Italian), canned, jarred, or homemade, we just plain love olives. This gigantic jar gifted to us from a very dear friend is full of Greek olives, pearl onions, sweet peppers, jalapenos, almonds, and garlic. These olives remind me of a certain olive grove in Italy; I don't remember picking olives ( I was more interested in chocolate back then) but I was in the company of people who were labouring to harvest the hard green olives that would then be transformed into liquid gold olive oil. My tastes have matured and I can now appreciate both chocolate and olives; nutella-stuffed olives anyone?
