Finding French olives in the super market is not easy feat. Italian olives? Of course! French olives? Nope! French olives aren’t too big, aren’t too spiced, and aren’t too strong in flavor. In short, French olives are better than whatever you’ve had in a can (collecting dust) in the cupboard for last six months.
These green olives from the South of France are beautiful skewered on a toothpick and dropped into a martini, and delicious for making olive oil. Fruity, lightly bitter, and slightly sharp, just they’ll suffice on their own as an appetizer.
Picholine is the most widely available cultivar in France, and is sure to be a hit among your French and Francophile friends.
