Oh, I envy you your pitted Kalamata olives. It would make it so much easier to cook with them.

I never buy pitted kalamatas. My daughter loves taking the pips out for me and sucking off the flesh that stays behind :)

I've been using my breadmaker again for the first time since moving back to SA. Maybe I should try an olive loaf next!

Amen!

I haven't tried every kind of olive, but I have loved every one I have ever had.

I love ripe black olives plain, on pizza, in Mexican dishes, and with stuffed green olives stuffed in them. I love stuffed green olives plain, in various dishes, and stuffed into ripe black olives. Stuffed green olives are excellent with cottage cheese too!

I think I do not like olives, but do like olive dip, do use them in soup, and if there are no salty pretzels I'd take one as a beer companion. But if you going to ask me, I do not like them

I love olives....unfortunately I learned recently they don't love me. Actually it is the brine they are in; olive oil is fine.

Yeah, I have to limit my olive consumption or I would look like the Stay Puft guy from Ghost Busters!

I always add chopped pimento stuffed green olives to my tuna salad sandwiches, along with lots of other ingredients.

I love to add olives to pimento spread and turkey salad. Also, I love to add them chopped to soft cheeses with some minced herbs or a bit of powdered spice to spread on crackers or baguettes.

I've not done that in a while....maybe it is time I dust that recipe off.
