Trying to recreate 'Ligurian' olives in Mclaren Vale..In Provence they remove the bitterness with wood ash (made into a slurry with boiling water to make it caustic) cool..then soak for 4 days. after a wash they look like this. Then the usual brine.. they are pretty close to the real thing.. Keep air away the whole time and they keep these spectac colours. fruity and delish.
