Method

 

  1. Remove leaves and stalks and wash olives to remove dust and dirt.
  2. Carefully slit each olive to release oleic acid. Although time-consuming, if you don't do this, you will end up with bitter olives once they have been pickled.
  3. Place in a pickling jar with a self-sealing lid. Fill with brine made up of 100 g non-iodised salt per litre of water, making sure olives are all covered.
  4. After three weeks, drain and wash the olives. Repack in the same cleaned jar and cover with a new brine mixture of 75 g non-iodised salt per litre of water. Alternatively, you can use 950 ml water and 50 ml white wine vinegar. Make sure all olives are well covered with 2 cm brine on top.
  5. Cover the brine with a thick layer of olive oil to create a seal.
  6. Leave olives for three months for best results. When ready to eat, you may wish to rinse them in cold water to wash the brine off.
