Bumper Crop

We are fortunate to have an olive tree in the back yard.

I read they have a light crop one year, then a heavy crop the next.   This year is the heavy crop so even after giving buckets full (or is that bucketfulls?) away we still have used up all our jars, plus a few more..

Processing them is quite a job.  You have to soak them in water for thirty days, changing the water every day.   Then bottle them in brine with whatever spice you please.   Chile and garlic please Adolf.

You can't see the other half dozen jars in the cupboard below.
