Has anyone found raw olives that are soaked in sea salt brine instead of regular salt? I'm not fond at all of regular salt. I do love the taste of olives though.

I get olives that are sundried. I'm not sure if they have added salt. The place I get them is call Organic Lives, and all raw restaurant/store.

Sun dried sounds good. I'm going to look for some at my fav health food store today. Thank you,
PS olives taste so good

I love the olives by Raw Earth Organics. They are soaked in a sea salt brine. I buy them from naturalzing.com
You can google - for more information about the olives.

LOL, I just saw those olives from NaturalZing.com yesterday and was wondering about them, and here you posted. Any recommendations which ones to try?

This is surely a coincidence! :)
I buy the "Sicilian Style Pitted Olives" (they are green) and the "Kalamata Style Olives Pitted" (they are black). That is the wording they use on the website.
I bought a small jar the first time and then advanced to quart jars, once I knew I liked them.
Before I found these I bought a different brand of the sundried and found them to be too dry and bitter for my taste.
Hope this has been helpful! :)

Thank you mblessed, I luv the taste of Kalamata. I stopped eating them because the brine was regular salt. In sea salt is perfect. I also want to try sun dried tho..the sun is awesome, I believe it transforms foods and gives them a certain energy. As a youth I would sometimes dry or warm foods in the sun. I believe we are "hard-wired" to use the sun in this way because, for many thousands of years, our ancesters in their no-tech world had the sun at their disposal.
