    Default Olives

    I just love olives. Most all kinds. The only ones I really don't like are
    those Greek ones that look like a large Raisin, and the ones stuffed with
    jalapenos. Odd that I don't like those because I love jalapenos. Before I
    knew of my almond allergy, I used to love those. And I like the ones
    stuffed with cheese, although I never tried the ones stuffed with blue
    cheese. Actually I've never tried blue cheese. It just looks off-putting
    to me. But I do like most cheese so probably would like them if I tried
    them.

    Angela only likes...er...loves pitted black olives. So we get a lot of
    those in our house. I don't mind the pits, provided I realize they are
    there. I have bought pitted kalamatta ones before only to bite down and
    discover a pit. Yowch!

    What are your favorite olives?

    I love olives, Julie. Green, black or red. Pitted or unpitted (as long as I
    know what to expect). Those Calamatas are the best! Any stuffing OK;
    garlic, chile, cheese, almond. But only pimento stuffed large green in a
    Martini!

    I like them all, but my favourites are simple Spanish whole green
    un-pitted olives. I buy them stored in brine in jars from the
    supermarket and add some chopped very hot bird's eye chili to the
    brine to give them some heat.

    Sometimes I also add things like onion and herbs to the marinade for
    variety.

    One advantage of un-pitted olives is that they take a bit longer to
    nibble as a snack, so I don't eat them to excess.

    One of my favourite snacks is a small plate of half-a-dozen olives, a
    similar number of cubes of cheddar and some slices of pickled gherkin.

    After the green ones, black kalamata olives are next on my favourites
    list.

    I love the black kalamata olives with the pits in them. The pitted ones
    lose something of their flavor. I don't like any kind of olives that have
    stuffing in them, or herbs, or cheese or any of that. Just like the plain
    ones.

    Oooh. I haven't had a Martini in years. I know I would like a dirty one.
    As a kid (and sometimes as an adult), I would drink the juice from the green
    olives. Yum!

    Yeah. Wrinkly. We used to eat at some Greek place in the U Dist. when I
    was a kid. They always served those olives with the food. I didn't like
    the food that I got, but... I didn't know anything about Greek food so my
    parents always ordered for me and it was always Souvlaki. I didn't like
    that at all. Had I known about Pastichio or Hummus, I would have had that.
    I did love the Baklava.

    Yeah. That's one reason why I like the ones with the pits in them for a
    snack. But if I'm eating them in a salad, it's easier to eat them with no
    pits.

    One thing I remember as a kid was that mostly the ones you would get in a
    restaurant had the pit in them. Perhaps the pitted ones were less common in
    those days?

    I love Kalamata, but don't get them very often because they are more
    expensive. I do love a good Greek salad!

    lol, my daughter went to snack on some black olives the other day and
    commented there was no juice.... I had stuffed some chicken breasts a
    few days ago with some ricotta mixed with cooked shallots, onions,
    garlic, red peppers and chopped tomatoes. It was missing something
    though so I poured the olive juice into the mix Next time I think I
    will go for the feta, spinach stuffing. I liked what I made but it
    wasn't my first choice. My daughter had put the ricotta in the shopping
    trolley for the chicken stuffing so I had to use it. I was thinking sun
    dried tomatoes too but I think my boys don't like so might have to do
    some without the tomato.

    I've tried repeatedly to put sun dried tomatoes in things. Nobody likes
    them but me. I can sneak a few into a sauce if I puree it really well.
    Angela will eat pasta sauce, pico de gallo, salsa and ketchup. Also tomato
    soup. But no other tomatoes in any form.

    My Saturday night special:

    Here's how I've been doing them for the last decade or five:

    You need a quality Gin (I use Tanqueray - cheaper Gins are OK for Sloe Gin
    Fizz or Gin & Tonic, although Beefeater or Bombay is about my limit, and
    they're excellent, too), a quality Dry Vermouth (I use Martini & Rossi or
    Cinzano, but there are also some fine French and Californias, too) and
    TIMING. I can't stress the latter enough. If you don't bring the alcohol
    content down to 35% abv or slightly less (to taste), it will be too strong
    and taste too much of alcohol. The same goes with Manhattans, by the way. I
    sequence the building of the drink(s) as follows:

    Put the glasses in the freezer. Fill the mixing vessel with ice enough to
    cover the amount of beverage you'll be making. Add about 3-1/2 oz (7 second
    pour) of Gin/drink. Swirl gently for a few seconds. Remove the Dry Vermouth
    from the 'fridge and add one capful (1 or 2 tsp?)/drink. Swirl briefly.
    Replace the Vermouth to the 'fridge and get out the bottle of pimento
    stuffed largest olives you could buy. Get out some hardwood toothpicks.
    Spear one olive/drink, two if your serving Martinis Rocks (blasphemy! I
    don't want ice cubes to continue diluting my drink as I'm sipping it!).
    Remove the glasses from the freezer and put the olives in them. Gently stir
    (never shake - that bruises the Gin and puts air bubbles in a drink that
    should be clear) and strain into the glasses. Kiss, toast, sip, enjoy.
    Repeat as necessary. You may have to experiment to get the ratios to your
    liking, but that's the price of progress. Please let me know what you end
    up with.

    Confucius say: Martinis are like breasts; one isn't enough and three is too
    many!

    Well, since I can't drink, I won't be having any. But thanks anyway.

    : One advantage of un-pitted olives is that they take a bit longer to
    : nibble as a snack, so I don't eat them to excess.

    : Cheers, Alan, T2, Australia.

    I had a nasty experience with a Greek salad a few years ago. In unpitted
    kalamata was hiding under a lettuce leaf and I broke one of my front teeth
    on it. had to have root canal, ost and then fake tooth. I now order m
    Greek salad with the olives in a side dish.

    I also love most olives, especially the salty, briny kind.

    I know the NYC Fairway is smaller; do you have the big, wide variety
    olive bar in yours that we have? I love the red and green cerignolas,
    the oil cured Moroccans, kalamatas, the Fairway fiesta mix, the giant
    Spanish olives... so many olives, so little time! I always have two or
    three containers of them, and when I feel cruddy and need salt, that's a
    great way to get it into my system.

    We do have the olive bar. Lately, since the tooth episode, Ihave been
    getting varieties of pitted ones. They have a spicy(kind of hot) mixture
    hat is just lovely, as well as the pitted kalamatas, which are my slalad
    staple.
