We always keep olives in the fridge once opened

Yes, definitely put them in the fridge. It probably says on the jar to refrigerate after opening. If not, I would anyway… I once got sick from rancid olives on a salad bar.

No .. olives belong in their proper container. They need to be stored in a moist, damp, cold environment next to their native friends nachos and teh taco.

Yes, after opening the can/jar.

The funny look is the olive oil that has congealed in the cold of the refrigerator.
Let them return to room temperature and them will look fine.

In the summertime I like to keep a can of black pitted olives in the fridge, they make a tasty snack on hot summer afternoons, especially with a beer!
