Last year I picked and made my own olives for the first

Last year I picked and made my own olives for the first time. It was such a success I was excited to give it another go this year. This is the result after 2 months of TLC to my home grown olives. Look at those babies shine ✨ . I’ve shared the method many times before. Here is the process if you’re feeling inspired to marinate your own olives this year as you can also buy the fruit fresh in store. . - After picking the olives, wash them very well. - Using a knife, score a line across the olives.(The traditional way is to smash them with a rock so they crack). - For 10 days allow the olives to soak in a jar of water only, changing it every 24 hours. - After the 10th day, in the same jar allow the olives to sit in a salt brine for one month that you must change weekly.(Quantities depend on the amount of olives you have but I’d say 3:1 olives to salt). - After one month, it’s time to marinate. I created a marinade (pickle) made of red wine vinegar, water, dried oregano, lemon wedges, garlic slices and EVO oil. This should sit for about 1-2 weeks 🕰. Taste as you go, till you’re pleased with how they taste. I hope you’re feeling inspired to give this a go. It sure is worth it 💯. ❤️❤️ @marys _kouzina . #maryskouzina #onmytable #doityourself #vegan #olives #olive #inspiration #food52 #veganrecipes #fresh #love #foodstagram #foodlover #pickle #greek #greekfood #greece #recipes #delish #sydney #food #homemadefood #tradition #foodies #foodie #foodlover er #sydneyeats #yummy #delicious @greece _is
