It's that time of the year again here, at our place - olive picking.
This years crop is a good one, due to the exceptionally dry hot summer. I am happy that this will mean a lot of bottles of olive oil to store away in the pantry.
I actually enjoy harvesting the crop and find it therapeutic being outdoors and seeing the buckets filling up. We have a few different varieties, but all mixed together, makes for a nice tasting oil.
When the picking is finished we will take them to a Local Olive pressing company where the process of turning the hard bitter olives, into delicious, fragrant extra virgin olive oil. The olives are pressed in a big press, imported from Italy.
I must get back to my job now and harvest some more .
Hope you are enjoying the week
