OLives

While waiting for opps i eat green olives with paprika inside this is one of my favourite snacks.
Wondering what nutrients comes from olives ,
A serving of five olives, green or black, weighing 19 to 22 g, has 2 g fat. A serving of ripe olives has 1 g dietary fiber while green olives has less than 1 g. Those that are on low-fat and low-sodium diet should exclude or avoid this food. Thanks to god im not included to those who have diet. Another history i browsed from WIKIPEDIA according to wikipedia -
A leaf from an olive tree is mentioned in chapter 8 of
Genesis when Noah finds one in the dove's beak. Very interesting, .... In the Homeric world, as depicted in the Iliad, olive oil is known only as a luxury of the wealthy--an exotic product, prized chiefly for its value in grooming; warriors would anoint themselves after bathing, and the body of Patroclus is described as being oiled in this way. But no mention of the cultivation of the plant is made. etc ..
I found out that olive has too much history, I never noticed it before until I read about it here in wikipedia, i really love and like the taste of yummy olive green one or black one. Black one is much delicious for my tastebuds.
If im not mistaken olive oil is the only oil blessed by the priest to become an holy oil for anointing the sick and used to make an ashes for ASH Wednesday.
Not only that you can make also an homemade scrub from olive oil, mixed it with brown sugar and you can apply or scrub into ur body or face before taking shower. Whatever. im enjoying now eating my 1 glass green olives….lecker!!!!

Yeah, that is why the mediterranean diet is the best in the world because of olive. We had actually few drums (little drums containing around 100 liters) back in Italy at home. Mamma uses olive oil much in the food and it adds taste. But now that we are out of Italy, we have to use it wisely coz one liter here is 6 euros.. i know you know that because they might have the same price there in Germany?

@ Chubskulit,
The black olive are actually dried green ones but they both come from the same tree. The fresh ones conserved are also good. Anyway, olive is like coconut too that every part of it can be used.

I saw an oil factory for olive in Italy and it was a great experience.

Yap they are from the same tree. but green is a little bit salty preparation compare to the black ones

Hi again Ms. Faye.. well, the green ones are like edible without cooking while the dried, they are usually cooked mixed with eggs or put in pizza.. the drier they are, the better tasting they get. As for the green, the salt helps it to have taste while being conserved.

The greeon ones also are the raw material for 'virgin' olive oil which is twice more expensive as the regular olive oil.

About commenting, yes, I make it as relevant as possible to help both me and the blog where i comment. I also get back as soon as I see someone commented.

Yes, you are right..the oil is quite universal that can be paired with anything. The plantation where I came from in italy is so wide actually.

I live in zuid holland, just turned one month yesterday. So new here. ^_^

SO you are in Germany? Which area?
