Canning Olives

It's Olive picking time at our house.  I have wanted to share our outdoor kitchen with you and today is a great time to do it,  because my sweetheart is busy canning olives.  We have just one beautiful Manzanillo Olive tree and we will have over 50 quarts of olives for our winter pleasure. 

First: The tree


 





The olive leaves are glossy green on top and grey green on the under surfaces


Second: The Lye-Cured Olives  




Third: The Canned Olives

  8. I hope you're still monitoring this site, and that you can help me. I just tried pressure canning my home cured olives for the first time. I followed the directions on the USDA site, but when they came out of the canner each jar had lost about half it's liquid. What went wrong, and will they still be good, if not submergered in storage? I will be doing more in a week or two and don't want them to mess up, too.
