Olive Harvest

October 31, 2009

It's hard not to notice the olive harvesting that has been happening around us. Yards, orchards, and even some roadside ditches are full of activity with families and farmers. Two weeks ago we helped Bina and Antonio pick their olives. And then last Sunday Bina took us to the local press where we watched thousands of olives transform into that liquid gold known as olive oil. It was fascinating to watch families arriving with their olives and their large plastic containers ready to be filled. Very different from the American method of acquiring a small, expensive bottle of olive oil on the supermarket shelf!

That is truly awesome! When I lived in Italy my roommates had these homemade bottles of olive oil and it was the BEST THING EVER.
