Raw Olives For Home Curing
These olives for home curing are Barounis which come from our 50 year old majestic groves. Barouni olives are ideal for the home curer. They're large green olives that ship well and are rather forgiving during the curing process (debittering). In fact they were originally planted nearly half a century ago for a farmer cooperative that was shipping olives to the east coast in home curing kits. Being that olives only grow well in Mediterranean climates and most people can't get them locally; we thought it only fitting to reopen that opportunity to people around the country to buy these wonderful olives and to create a new family tradition.
If you don't have a recipe of your own to cure the olives you can refer to this packet here www.ucanr.org/freepubs/docs/8267.pdf . Just don't get too hung up on which varieties and sizes it lists for each recipe. The Barouni will work well for any of the liquid curing techniques for green olives. WikiHow also has some good suggestions on curing olives at home www.wikihow.com/Cure-Olives .
The olives will be shipped to you in boxes that hold approximately 17lbs. That quantity fits nicely into a 5 gallon curing vessel with some head space. We send the olives via USPS Flat Rate Box so be sure to include a shipping address that the U.S. Postal Service delivers to.
