You can do as many of these as your patience will allow. You need green olives for this recipe, a mallet and a chopping board. I strongly urge you to use gloves and an apron.
Place an olive on the board and hit it gently with the mallet, a hammer, or a rolling pin, so that you can easily remove the stone. Do as many as you like. Place your olives in fresh water and change that water twice a day for eight days. On the eighth day they should be slightly bitter, but not as much as a fresh olive. If they are too bitter for your taste, continue to change the water until their taste suits you.
Drain them and spread them out on a cloth to absorb excess water.
Place olives in bowl and mix all ingredients together, except for the olive oil. Place the olives in suitable jars and cover with oil. Apply lid. These olives will keep for 2 – 3 months refrigerated.

Being a frugal spender, and somebody who shops online a lot, I'm keen to hear from others how they go about cutting through all the daily sales & marketing "BS" from retailers to uncover offers which in reality offer good value. I've grown tired of the charade where retailers try to sell us everything under the sun at an apparently "unbeatable" prices. So I've begun seeking out ways to determine where the best deals are online at any given time. Once I've found a seemingly good deal on something, my basic process afterwards to confirm this is as follow: 1. Run a quick google search to price compare it against what other stores are charging (i.e. ignore RRP and focus on the actual market price). 2. If the price looks competitive, try to find ways to get it for even less (i.e. any coupon codes offering discounts available, do I get any extra discount for signing up to the online store's free newsletter, etc). 3. Check shipping rates, as these can vary wildly for online orders between different retailers (often effecting the overall competitiveness of the product). There's also other techniques I use (like where to look for the best offers in the first place), but this is probably a good starting point for now. What about you?
