Olives Ascolana hails from Ascoli Piceno in the Marche region in Italy, dating back to the early 1800’s. It is told that cooks from wealthy families were creating ways to utilize leftover meat to avoid spoilage. Traditionally they are made with Ascolana del Piceno olives (a DOP product), but you can use any large green olive you enjoy eating. It you want to use olives with the pits it is much more difficult and done by cutting throughout the green olive in a spiral cut. Wild boar is my favourite replacement for everything pork, so please enjoy this wild substitution in this delicious appetizer. Classically the dish is made with pork, beef or veal and chicken, but there is many recipes and variations today.
