Why do these taste nowhere near the lovely cured and brined olives???Perhaps I answered this myself--they are not cured and brined???
The Mission variety's not very flavorful in the first place, and then they're cured with lye.
Here is a fine/fun article about olives (and olive oil). Answers many questions! I've never met an olive I didn't like.
