Our Price: $8.75



Olives are one of the oldest cultivated foods known to man. As delicious as olives can be, they are not edible until they have gone through a curing process that removes the extremely bitter compounds that they naturally contain. While most people simply buy cured, ready to eat olives, many others enjoy preparing their own olives as part of their traditional culture or simply because they like to make their own from scratch.


While curing olives is a lengthy process, it's not particularly difficult.

Water-cured Green Olives
While curing olives is a lengthy process, it's not particularly difficult. One of the easiest ways is by water curing, a method that requires repeated changes of fresh water to leach out the bitter components of the olives.

These water-cured olives are flavored with lemon, oregano, vinegar, chile peppers and garlic for a decidedly Mediterranean-style taste. You can easily vary the herbs & seasonings to best suit your own personal liking.

Marinated Green Olives with Duck Prosciutto
What is more Spanish than the olive? This delightfully simple appetizer is very reminiscent of Spanish-style tapas, small bite-sized portions of savory foods, usually eaten along with a glass of wine. If you purchase good quality olives which have already been marinated, half the work is already done. If you've been extra ambitious, you can use your own Cured Green Olives. But no matter how you prepare the olives, the end result will be wonderful.
