Mixed reviews on Vittoria/Sanniti brand Castelvetrano olives
Posted by Castelvetrano olive lover on 27th Jan 2015
I have purchased two of these 5.5 pound castelvetrano olive cans from Supermarket Italy over the course of a 3-4 month period. There should be a "crispness" to these olives and they should never be on the soft side. The darker green ones will be the right crispness and if they are a pale green, they are over-ripe. The olives I received in the first can were perfect in that the olives were perfectly ripe (right amount of firmness, and not mushy). 95% of the olives in the can were the darker green color you want. Unfortunately the second can I purchased 3-4 months later were not as good in quality (same exact brand). at least 50% of the olives were the pale green color and were mushy. Not enjoyable. I have also purchased the Partanna brand castelvetrano olives (in the bottles) and they were perfectly ripe. I want to purchase the 5 pound can of the Partanna brand castelvetrano olives but Supermarket Italy doesn't seem to ever have the 5 pound can in stock.
