What do you do when life gives you lemons ? Order a juicer on Amazon? (I need one too)
Or, pair it with my new favorite food, Castelvetrano Olives.
I first leaned about them from my foodie friend Leeann, who swore these would change my mind about olives ( I don't typically love olives, I just like them). I had them for the first time at a holiday shopping party last year, hosted by another foodie friend, Kira.
I remember taking a small bite of the plump bright green olive. WOW, I thought! these olives are spectacular. It was a special day.
They have a mild avocado and butter flavor, and they are meaty and a bit crisp; not as briny as other olives. These olive are mostly grown in a small town (Castelvetrano) in a Sicilian provence.
They are not ripened and are cured in a mild brine that yields sweet, mildly salty, bright green olives, that I find so palatable!.
I did not forget about the lemons....Here are some other lemony applications...
|Use them as a beautiful centerpiece|
|Make lemon water|
|Infuse olive oil with strips of lemon peel|
|Take silly photos of your baby!!!!|
|Zest lemon peel over treats, like these protein packed brownies.|
