CURING OLIVES

Ideas and recipes from sunny Australia, for nourishing,

love you back.

It's autumn here in Western Australia. With the golden light and the first
chilly nights comes the harvest of our wonderful Mediterranean olive and citrus trees.

My friend Debs introduced me to homemade olives from her garden last year and they were, by far, the best I have ever tasted.
 
So this year, I'm on a mission and harvesting all the unwanted olive trees in my neighbourhood. There are surprisingly many leftovers!!!
 
Making olives in brine is such a simple thing to do. Follow the steps below and in six weeks you'll have a little delight waiting in your cupboard.

INGREDIENTS

 

fresh black or green olives
salt
filtered water
sterilised glass jars with lids*

 

 

 

METHOD

 

1. First, wash and prepare the olives. Discard any with blemishes, separate the green and black ones if necessary (they have different soaking times, so need to be soaked separately). Now, use a sharp knife to make two lengthways cuts into each olive, down to the stone (one cut on either side of each olive).
 
2. Put the prepared olives into sterilised jars. Add the olives until the jar is just two-thirds full. Then cover the olives with water (ordinary tap water). Seal the jar with the lid.
 
3. Change the water and rinse the olives every day. For black olives, do this for 4 days. For green olives, do it for 6 days.
 
4. After the 4 days of soaking for the black olives (or 6 for the green), fill the jars with a brine solution (brine is salty water). To make brine, mix in 1/3 cup salt to every 1 litre of water you need. Heat up the salty water in a saucepan, and stir until all the salt has dissolved. Let the water cool for an hour or two. Then pour it over the olives, to fully cover them.
 
5. Then pour some olive oil over the top of the brine solution, to completely cover the olives. Seal the jars, then leave them for 5 weeks. After that, your olives are ready to eat. You can keep your olives stored for up to 6 months in a cool, dark, cupboard.
 
* To sterilise jars, wash them well first, then place the whole jar (and the lid) into a large pot filled with boiling water. Immerse the whole jar in water. Let the water simmer away for several minutes, lift the jars out carefully, let them dry on clean paper towels.
