Ingredients:

12 cups of water
1 cup of coarse salt
Large Green Olives purchased by the box (seasonal)

Directions:

  • Crush firm green olives, removing the pit.
  • Soak crushed olives in water for 4 days, remember to change water every day.
  • Place olives into canning jars.
  • Boil salt and water mixture, pour hot solution into the jars.
  • Seal jars and store.

Preparation: Pour contents of sealed jar into a bowl and soak the olives in fresh water for at least one day (over night is better, squeezing olives occasionally and refreshing the water). Squeeze as much excess water out of olives  as you can and place into serving bowl, let air dry, add fresh garlic, oregano, salt, anise seed and olive oil to taste.

Stir frequently and after they have been dressed allow them to sit for a few hours before serving. If you are a true olive lover this Italian recipe will become a keeper.
