Until few months ago, raw green olives scared me. They were not brined, they were not marinated, they required months in the making and, if something was to go wrong, all work and waiting would be in vain and disappointment levels would reach sky limits. Right? Wrong.
Green (or black) raw olives are today one of my best friends & favorite pantry items. Yes, they do require a bit of brine time, but that is soooo easy to do. Yes, they need marinating, but it is so so easy and fun to help them develop amazing flavors. And yes, there is some waiting time involved, but it IS worth it. We now have many jars full of the best olives in the world, naturally preserved, with no additives or funky ingredients, all for a price next to nothing and little effort on our part.
