ugh pitted olives. why do people go to the trouble of putting pits in olives before selling them that you need to take out afterwards. unbelievable. another fake job created by capitalism

actually!! i have researched the matter and learned that olive pits were traditionally added to keep the fruits firm and round, which is important for conservation and transportation. fascinating

see the little pointy thing on the olive? that's where the liquid pit is injected. it's usually a thick resin that solidifies quickly inside the fruit and give it the characteristic "inflated ball" shape and nearly doubles its size. a very interesting industry


Have you heard Flanders & Swann's "At the Drop of Another Hat"? Great story about the olivaderos of Spain, and the "timeless struggle of Man... pitted against the olive."
