A row of jars

Remember these?

Our locally harvested olives are now all fitted into jars (we use old recycled glass jars that have been properly sterilized) to be preserved according to a traditional family recipe. It required no special equipment and my husband actually did it all by himself.

They are stored at room temperature and will be ready for consumption in several months. In the meantime, they provide an original piece of decoration, don't you think?

Wow, I grew up in the San Joaquin Valley of CA, & there were lots of olive groves around us, but the farmers all sold to the commercial canning companies. I've never seen home preserved olives.

What do you do to the olives?
