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).
This is one of my all-time favourite, go-to pasta dishes. It’s adaptable and uses common pantry ingredients most people have on hand. This can be easily made vegan by omitting the cheese. This recipe is adapted from an old cookbook called Regina’s Vegetarian Table.

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...
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...
A super quick sauce for pasta. If you are using dried pappardelle you can make the sauce while the pasta cooks.
Ingredients (serves 1)

1 tbsp olive oil
1 large clove of garlic, grated or finely chopped
6-9 (depending on size) fresh baby tomatoes, quartered
6 pitted black...
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...
These tasty baked cheddar cheese and olive balls are delicious and the recipe is quick and easy! This recipe is courtesy of my mother-in-law, with a little tweak from me with the addition of grated parmesan cheese. I have no idea where she got it and she doesn't remember, but she has been...
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...
It's getting warmer here in the Midwest. I love all kinds of salads and thought this one look appetizing. I've made variations of this before. Always yummy.
