    mummamills's Note:

    I searched everywhere for this recipe!! A friend gave me a bag of green olives, because I had said I would like to try pickling my own. I love the whole Greek thing, making your own cheese and all that. Anyway, I finally found this recipe in a Womens Weekly book. Putting it here so I don't have to search! It is excellent, better then the bought one :)

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Pick over the olives, discard any with big blemishes.
    2. 2
      With a parring knife, cut down the side of the olive, thru to the stone, then turn over and repeat on the other side.
    3. 3
      Place the olives in a 2 litre (8 cup) sterilized jars, untill the jars are 2/3 full, then cover olives with cold water.
    4. 4
      To keep the olives submerged, fill a small plastic bag with water, and sit it on top of the olives. (I used a sandwich, ziplok bag).
    5. 5
      Change the water daily, scum may appear on the surface, but that's fine. Change the water for 4 days with black olives, and for 6 days with green olives.
    6. 6
      Combine the salt and water, stir over heat until the salt has dissolved, cool.
    7. 7
      Drain and discard the water in the jars, fill with enough salted water to cover the olives.
    8. 8
      Pour enough oil into the jars to cover the olives completely, and then seal the jars.
    9. 9
      Mark the date on the jars and store in a cool dark place for 5 weeks.
    10. 10
      After 5 weeks they are ready to eat, but you can then marinate them for another 2 weeks using lemon wedges and garlic, or whatever you like.
    11. 11
      Cover with oil.
    12. 12
      Note: don't mix your olives! they must be pickles separately.
