My husband has just finished harvesting our olives . . . .he's taken them to the olive press and we now have more than enough olive oil to last us a couple of years . . . .so I'm very grateful for that.
The best olives for oil are not the big plump ones . . .those are best for eating . .. but rather the small ones. There are a lot of different varieties of trees but the majority of ours are the ones that produce the little olives for oil.
So here is my "gratitude" A photo of some small knobbly little olives . . .insignificant by themselves but when accompanied by thousands more they become something really lovely . . . . .there's a metaphor there somewhere :-)
and this is the recipe:-
Happy Tuesday everyone,
Love Teresa xx :-)
