I'd like regular ancestral cooking emails!
Home-fermented olives gifted by @thelandofmint.
These are the best olives I have ever tasted. They are soft, giving when you bite into them, bitter and at the same time sweet. There is salt too, and herbs and a delicate tang of orange zest.
(And not a drop of omega 6 heavy sunflower oil in sight – yes!)
I am super-excited about fermenting olives. I was too late this year – all the ones around me had gone to the frantoio (olive mill) before I could get to it. Next year they won’t escape me!
