Where can I buy fresh olives in SF?
I want to cure my own olives.
I also have no idea HOW to cure my own olives so any other advice/resources would be helpful.
Saw fresh olives in the Friday market in Oakland/Chinatown sometime in December. Haven't been back there in a few weeks so I don't know if they're still there!
Fresh olives today (January 6) at Berkeley Bowl East.
They were dark (ripe), a bit shriveled.
I did not record the price.

Well, if you are picking your own olives, I believe that after all the rain this year, it may be too late.
You might want to do some research and make olives next year.
University of California, Agricultural Services used to publish a leaflet (21131) on curing olives. Remember that since they are a low acid food, they require careful handling to prevent botulism.
