Canned,pitted black olives

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.

      Scroll down past olive oil to get to olive info about brining, etc.
