    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:
