Think you don’t like canned California olives? You probably haven’t tried Graber Olives. The family-owned company takes a very different tack from most California producers when it comes to picking and curing. Most canned olives are picked when green and unripe, but Graber lets their olives fully ripen on the tree to a deep reddish-brown. These softer olives cure faster, so they get a relatively short soak in brine—just 3 weeks. The result is a tender, delicate olive with a mild, almost buttery flavor.
