Last week at the shuk, Hannah K. and I purchased one kilo of fresh olives and decided we would cure them in a joint project between CookingManager and Cooking Outside the Box. If you would like to embark on this adventure with us, start saving jars and large containers and look in your local markets on you your trees for fresh olives. Make sure you also have lots of kosher salt on hand. This is not a difficult process, but it takes patience.
