Does anyone have any tips or recipes to cure olives? I got 4# of organic just-picked olives today at the farmers' market. The farmer told me that they will cure much faster if you slit them a bit (he says they crush or slit them a little in Italy), and he says it good to add some lemon in with the cure or brine. So does anyone have any brines or cures? I don't want to go the way with lye; I want to use salt as the main ingredient. Thanks.
