Bright green, crunchy and appealing, Castelvetranos olives are rare in the US. With a meaty texture and nice buttery and briny flavor, the olives have not a hint of bitterness. This flavor is the result of a brine soak, rather than a cure in vinegar. Sometimes known as the "rich man's black olive," Castelvetranos are grown exclusively in western Sicily among the Belice River Valley, near the town of Castelvetrano. Enjoy on their own or paired with white wine and Marcona almonds.
