Sicilian "olive in salamoia"

Ennio Rao | Dec 14, 1999 11:51 AM

Does anybody out there know where I may mail order "olive in salamoia"? They usually come in large glass jars. The contents are: green olives (of any size), water, salt, a couple of hot peppers, and wild fennel. The last ingredient is of key importance. Sweet fennel will not do. This is the traditional Sicilian (and Southern Italian) way of conserving green olives.

I am unable to get or to order "olive in salamoia" through our local merchants. What I can find is too heavy on the vinegar. Please help!
