Title:How to Cure the Perfect Olives / Come curare le olive perfette / Cómo curar las aceitunas perfectas

Curing olives in brine. I hope you enjoy this 10 minute how-to video where I explain the process of preserving olives at home. Check out my other work: www.redbubble.com/people/scottimage/explore www.scottimage.com.au www.shutterstock.com/g/scottimage 00:00 Introduction 01:06 Olives explainer & when to harvest 03:02 Pitting 04:21 Curing 07:18 Jarring 09:02 Pruning 09:23 The final product, 200+ jars of Olives! Here's some more details: First up collect jars! Sliced Olives will take 6-7 weeks to cure with this method, pitted olives 3 weeks. Some people whack them with a hammer but I’ve not tried that method. You are going to need lots of salt, so buy it in bulk! It’s best to cure olives in a sealable container to minimise air contact, a catering bucket with a lid or a straight sided home brew drum works well. You will need a plate or bowl that snuggly fits inside your container to sit on top of the olives to keep them submersed. Greens olives are more bitter and will take longer to cure than ripe (black) olives. It’s OK to mix them together in the same batch but you will need to continue curing until the green olives have lost their bitterness. When the olives are picked keep them in water until they can be sliced/pitted, discard any with blemishes. Taste one before they are cured, this will give you some idea how bitter they are! Slicing: Each olive needs a slice down one side to allow the brine to work its way in and break down the bitterness. Cut olives length ways to the pip with a small paring knife. Place sliced olives into a bucket of water until salt is added. Pitting: If you have a pitting tool I recommend using it. It takes the same amount of time, the olives cure quicker and you fit more in each jar … win, win. Brining: Once all sliced olives are in the bucket rinse and drain before re filling with tap water. You don’t need to be too accurate here, 1½ cups of salt per bucket of olives is good. [Note: the video graphic at 04:33 says "1.5 cups salt per 10 litres". This is not per bucket of water but per bucket of olives, enough water is poured in to cover the olives with enough room to submerge them with a plate.] Fill with water and mix through well to dissolve the salt as it sinks to the bottom. Be sure there is enough liquid to cover and submerge the olives with a plate, bowl casserole lid or whatever you can sneak out of the kitchen without “Her In-doors” finding out. Put the plate on top of olives and submerge. If you have a lid for the bucket put in on … if not seal the top with a bin liner or bag to minimise contact with the air. In the first week the brine needs to be changed 3 times as a foam will develop on top of the brine during malolactic fermentation. When draining the brine I recommend rinsing once before refilling and adding the next lot of salt. After the first week the brine will only need changing once a week … remember to rinse the olives when changing! Pitted olives: at the end of 3 weeks taste, you will know if they are not right. Sliced olives: test after 5 weeks. Keep going with the process until you are happy the bitterness is gone, this may be 6 or 7 weeks with sliced olives. As long as you keep changing the brine you can go as long as you like until you are ready to put them in jars. Jars: Clean jars thoroughly in hot soapy water and rinse well. When they are ready give your olives one last rinse just before placing into jars. Mix a weak brine: ⅓ cup salt to 8 cups (2 litres) water … heat this in the microwave on high for 10 minutes. Line up all the jars and use a strainer to lift the olives out of the drum, then place in jars. Per medium sized jar (300 ml): add ½ teaspoon dried herbs, 1 tablespoons white wine vinegar. Pour heated brine into jars, top with extra virgin olive oil & seal lid. The warm solution should help seal the lids when it cools & contracts. Thanks for watching .... preserve your olives today!
