  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Greek

 Ingredients List

  • 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.
