>Undrab – #1141


I always though “olive green” was like …..greener?

Signora Anna on the market told me how to preserve olives.

First, whack your olive with a hammer

Next, put it in a jar with water and change the water every 12 hours for 2 weeks.

Then make a 20% brine solution, sterilise the jar, and pour over the olives.

Add cloves of garlic and chillies, seal with a layer of olive oil and leave for a bit.

I’m not too sure.

Are they really meant to be bubbling…?
