Our favorite olives
I can't believe I forgot to tell you about our favorite olives in Spain, from the market: they're stuffed with a tiny pepinillo, known here under their French name, cornichons. It's a tiny pickled cucumber, and it's very tasty - either on its own, or.. well, stuffed into an olive. Not bad at all!
I'm not really a big olive fan, but I'm getting better! And olives in Spain are delicious, somehow much more so than the ones I get at home. It must be something about leisurely picking at tiny morsels of cheese, ham and pickles, with a glass of wine.. it's just vacation for me. Doing the same at home, well, it's just not the same.
