So that you can try the best, we are going to explain you step by step how to dress olives. Do not miss it.
Ingredients you need
To dress your olives you will need:
- A little bit of salt
Step by step
Once you have everything, it will be time to get down to work to obtain some delicious olives. To do this, the first thing you have to do is place them in a container and wash them well with water, especially if they have been collected from trees as they could have dirt.
When they are already well cleaned, we must take them to a place where we are not afraid to stain, because what we have to do now is hit them open. I insist, just one hit, you don't have to crush them. You can use a glass soda bottle for this, as the olive has a concave base and it will not fly away.
Once they are all open, They are placed in a bucket with water until they are covered until the next day, when they will have to change the water. So for 10-15 days. It is important that they are tasted from time to time to know when they are no longer bitter.
After that time, and immediately they have the flavor that you like, You will drain all the water and put them in glass jars with a couple of unpeeled garlic cloves, a few pieces of fennel, a few thyme stalks, a pinch of salt and water. You will put the lid on it, and then you will only have to wait two to three weeks.
And ready. In just a month you can taste some delicious seasoned olives. Enjoy your meal!
