Marinated Green Olives - Chakistes Kibrisli Style
5 mins (prep 5)
7 ingredients
200 servings
My parents were taught as a child in Cyprus how to prepare their own olives, it's a long process but this is worth it. The raw green olives are split in half with a special stone but seed still intact, this allow the brine (salty water) to soak into the olives. The olives are then jarred with the brine and stored away for months. This recipe is not that process but it's the way it's marinated for Mezze's. Measurements are for personal preference only, you could use less lemon if you don't prefer it to be tangy. Enjoy
