olives

The olive, botanical name Olea europaea, meaning "European olive", is a species of small tree in the family Oleaceae, found traditionally in the Mediterranean Basin. The species is cultivated in all the countries of the Mediterranean, as well as in Australia, New Zealand, North and South America and South Africa. Olea europaea is the type species for the genus Olea.
The olive's fruit, also called an "olive", is of major agricultural importance in the Mediterranean region as the source of olive oil; it is one of the core ingredients in Mediterranean cuisine. The tree and its fruit give their name to the plant family, which also includes species such as lilacs, jasmine, Forsythia, and the true ash trees (Fraxinus).

    Dry-Cured Olives

    Anyone have any suggestions for using these? I'd bought them for a fantastic recipe as part of a challenge (not an olive challenge, that was the cool part), and I promptly lost the link to the recipe and my Swiss cheese memory prevented me from recalling even the general nature of what I was...

    Recipe Almond-Breaded Tapenade-Stuffed Trout, with Mushroom Side

    This recipe is inspired by Jacques Pépin, from his book, Poulets & Légumes: My Favorite Chicken and Vegetable Recipes. Although he stuffed chicken breasts, I used trout. So, to be honest, the only part of his recipe I took was the mushroom sauce! I hadn't wanted to adapt the tapenade that...

    I have ripe olives on my trees, what next?

    I have 2 olive trees and for the first time (only my first year with 2 olive trees :whistling: ) I have ripe and ripening olives. I know from my time in Greece 10 years ago that you don't eat olives ripe off the trees. Something needs doing to them first, I think. But what? I only have a...

    Would Olives Freeze Well?

    Back in the day (pre-COVID) I'd go to the supermarket olive bar, and pick about 10-12 olives, generally a mix of a couple favorite types of pitted olives, and take this home. I only really want olives about once a month or so, and that would do me. Now they sell pint sized pre-filled...
