An olive is a fruit. I read once that olives do not naturally turn black. That was part of the canning process developed by a woman out in California. The olives are actually soaked in lye as part of the canning process, and that turns them black. Naturally ripe olives are more dark brown in color. The most interesting olives I've ever had were in Boston's Italian North End....they were large green deep fried olives....quite good.<br />
<br />
In Michigan, there is a hamburger called the Olive Burger....which is also very good, (for olive lovers). Mix plain green chopped olives (with no pimentos) and mayonnaise together to make a sauce similar to Tartar Sauce, and spread it on the top of a hamburger. Serve with lettuce and tomato.
