Fresh Green olives are native to the Mediterranean but have expanded to growing in many other temperate climates worldwide.
Fresh Green olives are ready for harvest when purple to green in color.
Fresh olives must be cured before eating. Olives may be cured in a salt brine, in a lye solution, or in water depending on desired result and length of time available. Water- cured olives: rinse the olives and crack with hammer or cut a slit with a small knife, place in a jar, cover with water and store in a cool, dark place for 10 days. Then make a salt water brine, drain the olives, pour over the brine, add lemon, garlic, vinegar and oregano and store for an additional two weeks.
Green olives are members of the Oleaceae family
