Good price Good taste

We use olives every day and this package is a great deal. Good taste. Good price. Good size.

Rating: 4 star out of 5

not bad at all

We get through a lot of olives (pizzas, puttanesca, quesadillas) and these aren't bad at all. Not first choice for a nibble and cold beer, but fine for cooking.

Mould develops once opened

This jar is far too big to eat all the olives in one go and they do not keep once opened, develping a white mould after a few days. The jar is now a false economy, better to buy as you need them. The previous waitrose jar was smaller and the olives kept for ages in the fridge.

huge jar

I was surprised by the size of the jar and struggled to eat them. They looked great but literally had no flavour, so I threw them on salads, pizza...anything. I even made olive bread. The best olives I think are ones from the deli in oil, rather than brine.

Go mouldy too quickly

The olives themselves are fine, but I had to throw away nearly a whole jar, as it had developed a layer of mould within a few days. I scraped off the mould and discarded a few of the olives, but unfortunately, the taste of mould had spread to the olives lower down in the jar. Would be better to have in a much smaller size. Pity, as the quality of the olives is good.

Cook's Note If feeding fussy eaters, lay the anchovies at one end and the olives at the other. Variation Top with green instead of black olives, or use a mixture of both.
