I'll try the Candied Olives . . . . if I can find an acceptable substitution for the Castelvetranos. Any suggestions? Thanks!
vvvanessa February 21, 2011
it sounds like a meaty, fruity green olive is in order, something not too briny or salty-- i would try cerignolas. (castelvetranos and cerignolas might be my two favorite olives!)

Just FYI I have already tested these with the Castelvetranos.
