Curing of Home-Grown Olives, Greek Style

If you own an olive tree and do not want to go through the complicated
process of leaching olives with chemicals, follow one of these
ancient Greek methods to get rid of the bitterness.

SALTING METHOD: Place washed olives in a wicker basket or a plastic
container with holes. Cover with medium-coarse salt. Set basket
in sun and protect with a cheesecloth cover. Twice a day for a
week, toss olives to redistribute them, until the bitter fluid is
drawn from them. Bring olives in at night to prevent mold.

WATER METHOD: Cover washed olives with a solution of salt water
- 1 cup salt to each quart water - in a crock or glass jar. Place
a weight, such as a small plate or washed rock, to keep olives
submerged. Olives may remain in this brine for months. Marinate
in Olive Marinade before serving.
