A few years ago I picked up 2 quarts of homemade olives at Papa Joes in Rochester. They were bright green and cured in garlic, a small amount of misc. veggies for color I suppose, and about 15 other spices. They were fantastic!! I went back a few months later and when I asked was told they were only an experiment by the store manager who had made them himself at home and had decided they were not worth the time nor trouble to ever do them again.
Is anyone aware of any metro market that might carry such little homemade marvels other than the standard olive bar stuff from Whole Foods, Salvagio's, etc (usually Del Allo brand stuff). Thanks!
