Oil-cured olives are those deep black olives you see in your grocer’s olive bar that look like they have the skin of a well-worn, aged face after years of sun worshiping. True olive connoisseurs particularly appreciate the oil-cured olive. Its taste is so complex, so intense. The variety of olive used is Beldi; they are most commonly called oil cured, but actually they are only packed in oil after they have been cured. They are a Moroccan olive that is picked very ripe and black, then actually packed in layers of salt and left to cure. Once they become soft and wrinkled, they are washed and packed in oil.
