    Default Olives: the main reason I'm glad to be of Mediterranean decent

    the few times I actually attend my Sicilian family gatherings the only thing I do it for is those huge garden raised olives that make their triumphant but somewhat stealthy appearance at the middle of the table's sea of wine and salad.

    I wish I could have them all the time.

    MMMM olives.

    yes yes, OLIVES ftw.

    The local Wegmans carries a "mediterranean olive bar" full of different types of delicacies, including a few varieties of cheese-stuffed olives (feta, blue cheese, gorgonzola), garlic-stuffed, anchovy-stuffed, almond-stuffed, red pepper, maybe a couple others. If it weren't for the sodium and fat content I could eat 'em all day long.

    I always want olives, but don't really enjoy eating them.

    I want to try Bertolli. I'm guessing it's really expensive.

    I know it may be anathema to the Italian side of my family, but I am not the biggest fan of olives. I do, however, love olive oil.

    I absolutely love olives, and view them as an expense I will forever and always will be willing to make.

    I think it's because I have them where they are unsuited; like silly English salads.

    I think I'd really like them in a proper Mediterranean meal. They're great on pizzas.

    I like the variety of types and flavours at farmers'(gr?) markets.

    Oh, yes!!!

    Farmer's Market olives, or any muy authentico olives are dee-li-shis!!!

    Pricey, but worth the cost.

    There are a couple lebanese groceries around here where they have home-preserved olives in big buckets, and you buy them by the pound. I ought to get some on the way home today.

    I thought I was the only one.

    Olives are delicious.
