Olives- Shipping- 3 stars By: L BIVONA (Nov 5, 2012)
I finally rcvd. my much anticipated Olive delivery..
I was kept informed as to the timing and to the non delivery(too rainy etc.) Thanks.
As to the delivery itself, it took 3 days shipping time.The box arrived somewhat squashed on it's sides,and may or may not have caused some fruit bruising...
upon opening, the aroma was as expected, they smelled like" Olives"They were very soft, so I put in cold water right away.
I did find about 1 lb very bruised and dark olives, I could not use---so to the compost to go..The bruising did penetrate to the pit
Also 1 to 1.5 lbs of the olives were red-could not use for my green curing recipe
I started the process today and in 3 to 4 weeks we shall see' THE FRUITS OF MY LABOR"
