HOW TO CARRY OUT THE SEASONING ?
As a first step, we must be sure to wash the olives well, so that no residue from outside the fruit combines with our preparation. Then, we must put the olives in a container with water for 15 days at a time. It is also important to change the water every day to rinse them well.
After this time, it is time to season the olives. In a large bowl, add all or some of the above-mentioned spices and make sure they cover the entire skin of the olives. We add a brine (2 tablespoons of salt and 1 cup of wine vinegar for every litre of water) and two tablespoons of olive oil to intensify its flavour.
After that, all that is left to do is to arm oneself with patience and eWait 60 days before consuming whole olives.. This may seem like a long time, but in all honesty, it is well worth the wait. This is just one variant of the hundreds of ways to dress olives.. But whatever the method, the result is always the same: delicious olives.
