make your own by mimicking nature! no more little expensive jars from raw capitalists… transported from far far away.. i mean olives are staple food around here.. you can’t buy a little jar – olives are bulk only!
so here’s how to make your own sun dried salt-free most delicious richly flavored pure olives…
depends on your origin and western influence... but probably 8 slices.
i had a few friends over – and they practically danced in my kitchen! one of them was non-raw and she said it’s the best pie she ever tasted!
a few days ago i went with my daughter on a gathering/gleaning/swimming trip. we stumbled upon an apricot orchard at the very end of the season. a few trees had slightly over-ripe apricots. now apricots are at the top of the list of pesticides… but these ones had enough quality assurance signatures… the orchard was neglected including the orchards around it (nectarine and lemon), the weeds between the trees where abundant and tall (no ground spraying), and most importantly – appx. one out of three apricots had the most beautiful worms dancing in it (usually inhabiting only one half). and so we very carefully picked the soft apricots and filled a 2 gallon bucket! a pie was an obvious need once we got home.
makes one neat loaf enough for 4 westerners or 8 non-westerners
here’s real raw halva – and it is as authentic as it gets. i am in palestine – where halva is sold in every open market by the kilo. halva is a sweet sesame confection. this raw version is pretty, delicious, heavy but dense enough to make you stop after a few bites. a great way to get more flax into my daughter’s diet…
(and yes i am well aware that the mulberries i picked this morning look (and taste) far more orgasmic – and that is perfectly fine – to compete with nature is suicide)
