Olive History
Olives were the symbol of peace to the ancient Greeks. That is the origin of the expression "to offer an olive branch." When the Greeks wished to make peace, they would literally take a branch from an olive tree and offer it to the enemy, who was duty bound to accept it.

Olives have a long and distinguished history, indeed. The next time you enjoy an olive, remember that the same flavor was enjoyed by people living before 4000 BC.
