Green or black? Nearly everyone has a preference when it comes to olives! But did you know that there are many, many varieties of olives that distinguish themselves well beyond color?
There’s the mild and nutty French picholine, and the strong, sweet, Spanish Picual. There are olives from Africa and Israel, Egypt and Greece. There’s also the California Mission olive and a host of Italian olives used for distinctive olive oils.
Even if you’re not interested in becoming an olive (or olive oil) connoisseur, you may enjoy taking note of the varied tastes of olives—whether you’re slicing a handful onto your pizza or dropping one into your martini.
