You’ve probably wondered how someone can have a blog on a narrow topic like olives. It isn’t hard. After ten thousand years the ancient fruit and it’s byproducts have penetrated many aspects of our lives, and there is much to say.

Every day I read lots of material about the olive, some from books and others from the internet. I thought I would share with you the articles, recipes, research documents, and other information I find on the internet. Most of it is very interesting and some of it inspires me to write an article or two of my own. None of these links are in any way my opinion or are endorsed by me. I am sharing.
