A friend who has an olive tree in her back yard gave me a few pounds of olives a few months ago. I decided to cure them in brine following instructions I found in a book of "lost arts". Some of the olives turned out a bit squishy and I'm told this means they are spoiled. I've never done this before and I'm not quite sure what to expect. Does anybody know if I can eat the squishy olives or am I about to poison my family?
