Castelvetrano Olives

I found the most beautiful olives. They are Castelvetrano olives. (Castel means castle and Vetrano is a city in the Sicilian region of Italy.) Delicious, not bitter at all as I thought they might be.

 

"They are mild in flavor with a slightly saline and non-bitter aftertaste."
