Our olives that is. :cute:


My "foodie" mate came up with an interesting and very easy method of curing olives.

He tried some of ours out about 3 weeks ago with this process and I've got to say I was impressed!

So this morning we picked two bucket loads, after 2 hours of washing and putting small slits in the fruit here is the result.

Be ready in around 3 to 4 weeks.

East peasy.


2 buckets of nice fresh olives.


Slit both sides of each olive.


Place into a tub with 14 litres of water.


Add two cups of salt.


Stir well.


Change the water/brine mx every few days


After about 3 weeks or so they will ave lost their bitterness and start to taste like pickled olves.


Getting to a final taste may take some more weeks.


Once appy with taste.


Put 1 cup of salt and 14 litres of water


You hould add a fair bit of red wine vineger - it's up to your tastes.


Pour a little olive oil o tp as this acts as a barrier to bacteria.:cute::cute:
