out on Lyell Avenue near Mt. Read, has a warehouse sized store
chock full of Italian specialties. I go there to buy olive oil.
Those big cans of cold pressed are about half the price out there
as they are at Tops. While I'm there I always pick up olives as
well. These are from Spain. In Spain when you order a beer it
is likely to come with a small plate of green olives similar to
the one shown at the right.
olives are nothing fancy, just olives, water, salt and some lactic
acid. They still have the pits so they are nice and firm. They're
queen size and the jar is 10 ounces. Olindos sells these for $2.19.
Next time you have friends over for beer, try putting out a plate
