What is the polite way to eat olives that still have pits, in a restaurant ?
Alot of places seem to serve an assorment of olives, which often are NOT pitted - for example, Nicoise olives.
Now, if I was at home, I'd just pick them up with my finger tips and eat them and spit the pits in the general direction of other family members... JUST KIDDING.
But seriously.... do you pick up the olive with a fork (which is incredibly difficult and leads to "shooting" olives sliding off the plate ? It seems incredibly un-couth to just pluck the pit out of your mouth (and leaves dirty oily fingers).
Do you eat the olive, hold the pit in your mouth, politely bring the fork up to your mouth, ease the pit onto the fork, and lower it to your plate?
Anyone know, Miss Manners or other ideas on how to eat olives politely ?
