Olives, Ripe Pitted

Olives, Ripe Pitted

We usually buy ripe olives in 6-ounce cans.  We use them mostly for adding flavor to various cooked dishes, and for garnish and flavor on salads.  Since ripe olives are processed with salt, and thus high in sodium, we don’t recommend “chowing down” on them, but they do enhance the flavor of many recipes.  Slicing the ripe olives helps to distribute the flavor throughout the recipe.  We have also found a variety of flavors and textures between brands of ripe olives, and recommend that people find the brand that they like best.  See the nutritional chart below.
