I’m continually drawn to activities that make me less dependant on consuming a retail product. Perhaps it’s my independent nature that would rather be my own resource than reliant upon a 3rd party? I’m not sure. Sometimes I look at things and think, I want to do that myself – like build a house, make my own pesto, etc.
When I saw olives at my local fruit and veg store, I knew I just had try preserving them myself!
I’ve never done this before. And I’m not strictly following a recipe. I’m due to head overseas in a few weeks, and I’d be really disappointed if the olives aren’t ready. After reading through a few explanations online, I’ve decided to cut through the olives and soak them in salty water from the start. Hopefully they don’t get too salty by the time all the bitterness is drawn out. I did read that I could soak it in spring water (I hope by “spring water” they mean “filtered water”) to get excess salt out after this. Here’s hoping you’ll hear from a happy olive lover (that’s me) in a month or so!
I should mention that if this works it will work out a lot cheaper! Also the water needs to be changed once a day. If you’re wondering what articles I read, don’t be lazy now, just Google.Pin It
