help please...red/maroon colored olives

susan | Jun 10, 2003 10:24 AM

I am having a graduation party for my son and he has requested that I include bowls of olives that are red/maroon fleshed(his favorite)that I seem to find everywhere in Manhattan. For whatever reason the name of these red/marooned fleshed olives is escaping me. I was wondering if anyone could help me in remembering what type of olives these are( my supermarket here in CT.has offered to order them for me if I can tell them what kind of olive they are). I'd make a trip into the city but I have no time since I am preparing dinner for 100 people...which is probably why I can't remember a darn thing. Also anyplace that you know of that can ship olives overnight in case my supermarket is not able to get them? It is times like these that I am even more jealous of you folks living in NY with so many wonderful foods at your fingertips, I've often wanted to beg some of you to adopt me as a new best friend...but who the heck would want me if I can't even remember the name of a silly olive...some chowhound I am...it's pathetic!!!Many, many thanks!
