You have to give us a little more information. Are you talking about already brined/cured olives that are further marinated in various dressings &/or sauces? Or are you talking about brining/curing hard fresh-from-the-market green olives?

The New York Times had an article on old-fashioned home-curing your own olives in their food section just a couple of weeks ago.

I copied & saved it to my computer, but can't post it here due to copyright issues I would think. If you'd be interested in having it, let me know & I'll send it to you via private message.

Okay - just sent it to your private messages Mikki. Had to send it in 2 separate messages as it was too long to fit in just one message. One message has the article; the other the curing recipe.
