To bitter to be eaten right off the tree, olives undergo a curing process to make the palatable. Sometimes olives are picked before they are ripened and sometimes they are picked once fully ripened, like Kalamata olives usually are. There are several types of curing processes. Water curing, brine curing or lye curing are the most common. Authentic and traditional Kalamata olives come from southern Greece and are sometimes dry cured rather than soaked in a brine. This allows them a longer storage life. They are then packed in olive oil, or an olive oil vinegar mix and may or may not have added seasonings. They also can be salt or brine cured, in which cases red wine or red wine vinegar is typically used to give them their marvellous flavour.
