Do Olives Need to Be Refrigerated?

Answer

Whether or not olives need to be refrigerated depends on what the olives are packed in. If the solution is brine or anything with brine in it, you need to refrigerate them after opening. If the solution they are packed in is 100% olive oil, they do not have to be refrigerated after opening.
