Olive of Shame

Olives are horrible there is no doubt about it. If you like them you are lying to yourself. I like them. I am lying to myself but they taste better if you do. Here in Dandylusia we eat lots. There is a strange custom here of not eating the last one, they call it the Olive of Shame, shame on you if you eat it. Leaving it means you are not greedy, and it applies to everybody sharing the plate with you so nobody nabs it, they nab the penultimate one instead. Pretzel Logic. I often wish the'd only serve one.

  1. I find that there are tasty olives and others that taste as if they have been soaked in petrol for the last month!

    I eat the olive of shame and laugh at the stupidity of others!

    Zapate in Cadiz serves great olives…cant remember if free with beer of bocadilla…
