These Olives are bright, slightly spicy, slightly sweet and savory. They are a great start to any dinner party. If you make extra they make great gifts. If you are invited to dinner take these instead of a bottle of wine. Just put them in a pretty glass canning jar with a bow and gift tag for a memorable and delicious hostess gift! Cara Cara oranges, a type of navel orange grown in California’s San Joaquin Valley, are available December through April. The bright orange exterior of cara cara oranges is similar to other navels, but their interior is a distinctive pinkish red, has an exceptionally sweet flavor with a tangy cranberry-like zing, and few to no seeds.
