Trader Joe's Dried Kalamata Olives are not the canned black olives you used to place on your fingers as a child-as enjoyable as those were. Nor are they the essential jarred olives you'll discover lining grocery store aisles throughout the nation. What are they, then? They are dried, they are packaged in a vacuum-sealed bag, and they are tasty. Kalamata olives can only come from Greece-and that's exactly where these Dried Kalamata Olives come from. Grown in the south of Greece, these olives are harvested and after that processed by suppliers in Thessaloniki. After being treated in a light salt water, the olives are sun dried to excellence and lightly tossed in a small amount of oil for product packaging. The result is an extreme, meaty olive with a semi-dry texture-and a pit! Remember about that. The individuality of these Dried Kalamata Olives will add a remarkable texture to the traditional antipasti plate. Or, serve with a variety of olives on a bed of fresh rosemary for an appetizer as aesthetically appealing as it is delicious.
