Olive Harvest

My friend,Cathryn has an olive tree in her backyard and a damn fine one. So when she invited me to strip the tree bare-with the help of her gorgeous 18 month son Ned- I was there in a minute.

I brought those babies home,cleaned them and packed them in salt. Two months later here they are;

It was a long wait but definatly worth it. They taste salty and buttery.
Aerial view of beautiful black olives..
Here they are doused in Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Will add garlic and chilli then store in jars to give to friends.
