Dry cure olives

18 Oct

Didn’t get too many olives from my tree and last year I tried to cure in brine but it olives just went moldy which was unexpected as I put so much salt in it. So trying something different this year, just pure salt. 
   
    
 

I have to check it in 3 weeks. The salt is supposed to turn sludgy and I can test the flavour for bitterness and resalt if needed. They’re supposed to go wrinkly and can be plumped up again with boiling (which removed the saltiness) or put in oil. I hope these make it that far!
