Look at these beautiful olives James picked from a couple of trees in our garden.
We had about 10 olives in total last year, but this year the trees have flourished after we freed them from the pots and gave them their own space in the back garden.
Aren't the colours gorgeous? Like jewels I think.
James soaked them in a water - changing it every day for a week.
Then I came home tonight ... and voila.
We've got five precious bottles.
James bottled them with fresh herbs and bay leaves from our garden plus garlic and celery.
The bottles are in the pantry now while the flavours infuse.
We'll serve them in a couple of months, slightly warm, drizzled with olive oil and served with some crusty bread and a glass of wine...
Definitely worth bottling.
James, too, I reckon!
