The Jeff’s Garden family had a wonderful surprise this week! Imagine our glee when we opened the October 2018 issue of Martha Stewart Living Magazine and happened upon an article about actress Tracee Ellis Ross where she claims to be a fan of our Castelvetrano Olives! It just so happens that we are also huge fans of Tracee Ellis Ross- what a wonderful coincidence!
We have to put our giddiness aside for a moment to brag about these delicious treats boasting a unique nutty, buttery flavor, mild brine, and wonderful natural green color! These memorable olives are a favorite snack olive in Italy and growing in popularity in the United States.
Jeff’s Garden Castelvetrano Olives are ideal for elevating a variety of recipes any time of the day (or for snacking straight from the jar like Tracee Ellis Ross)! Here are a few easy ways to enjoy this delicious treat around the clock.
