Today is World Olive Tree Day. This well known small fruit belongs to the stone fruit family called drupes.

The olive tree (more specifically the branch), symbolises peace and friendshipΒ according to ancient Greek mythology.
This sacred plant also represents cleansing, healing, light, victory, wisdom, health, luck, stability and tranquility.

The olive tree of Vouves in Crete, GreceΒ is probably the oldest olive tree in the world and it still produces olives. Based on its tree ring analysis, it could be between 3000–4000 years old!

Olives are powerful antioxidants which may provide important health benefits that are good for the heart and may protect against osteoporosis and cancer.

Olives are low in cholesterol and a good source of dietary fibre, which the body needs for good gut health.
(The healthy fats in olives are extracted to produce olive oil).

Canned olives are soaked in brine which is high in sodium (salt), so consuming fresh olives are a healthier choice!

We love stuffed large olives with cheese and peppers. What is your favourite way to use olives in recipes?
