What are Castelvetrano Olives?
Castelvetrano Olives is a Sicilian green olive known for having a particularly mild taste compared to standard olives. Sourced from Blice Valley in Sicily, these olives pack a sweet buttery flavor, often paired with chicken, salad, bread, fish, and more.
What are brine-cured olives?
Brine-curing olives pertain to the olives undergoing the brine-curing process of letting the olives soak in salt water for an extended period of time, preferably 3-6 months. The idea is to eliminate the bitterness of the fruit from the oleuropein upon harvest.
Should you rinse the brine off the olives?
The whole idea of brine-curing olives is to make the fruit palatable and lessen the bitterness. However, you can also eat your brine-cured olives straight out of the jar as they would be too salty. A good practice is to rinse them with water for a few rounds before serving.
Do brined olives spoil?
Like any other fruit, brined olives also spoil, but they have a relatively longer shelf life than most. Considering that you've stored them properly in a cool, dark place away from sunlight, you should be able to preserve them for about a year or 2.
