A simple bowl of olives: juicy, salty goodness.
Now a common garnish at the bar, once revered as a gift from the goddess Athena, this simple bowl of olives with peaceful leaves is a quiet reminder of bounty. They also have a history unique unto themselves, with several famous individual trees 2000 to 5000 years of age dotted across the cradle of Western civilization. What would those trees tell us about our past? But, like any beloved grandparent, those trees also continue their work, making the tasty snacks we so enjoy.
