Growing local

WARNING!! Don't EVER taste a raw olive!!!! They are the most disgustingly bitter thing ever and they take the lining off the inside of your mouth (well so my husband says).

We picked about 2kg of olives from a "neighbourhood" tree in the weekend. I have started the curing process as per Olive Australia's "favourite" method.

I made a small version of my mango picker (mango picker in photo) and used it to get the olives that were out of reach.

Green (unripe) and black (ripe) olives just picked from the tree. They are nice and big and lovely looking.

Green olives pricked with fork to allow brine to get in.
