Black Olive Varieties
Black olives aren't just plain and found in a can; there are plenty of interesting cured black olives to choose from, such as Italian olives. One is the Liguria, a black olive that is salt-brine cured with a vibrant flavor, and sometimes packed with their stems. Another Italian black olive is the Ponentine, salt-brine cured and then packed in vinegar; it has a mild flavor. The Gaeta is also a ripe olive; it is dry-salt cured and then rubbed with oil. It has a wrinkled appearance, mild flavor, and is often packed with rosemary and other herbs. And one black Italian olive that is popular at tastings is the Lugano; it is usually very salty and sometimes packed with olive leaves.
Perhaps a more common brine-cured olive is the Kalamata, a
Greek black olive
that is harvested fully ripe. It is a deep purple color and almond shape, with a rich and fruity flavor. The French Niçoise olive is also often found on the olive bar; this small black olive has a rich, nutty, and mellow flavor with a high pit-to-meat ratio. It is a bit wrinkled and is often packed with herbs and stems intact.
