Where to find sun-dried olives from Crete in Montreal

foxburger Feb 17, 2010 08:15 AM

I tasted these recently from a friend who got them directly from Crete and would love to find them here. They're salty with just a hint of sweetness and look like raisins... Anyone have any suggestions?

    Check out Mourelatos, they might have them or a similar version. You can ask to taste before you buy at their deli/cheese counter.
