Olives, 1½ kg
Lemon with peel, 2 medium units
Garlic, 1 head
Hot green pepper, 2 medium units
Salt, 15 heaping teaspoons
approximate amount - to taste
Water, 15 cups
approximate amount - as needed
Olive oil, 2 tablespoons


1. First, "knock" each olive with a kitchen hammer until it cracks.
2. Transfer to a bowl and rinse with water. Soak the olives in water and change water every 24 hours for 10 days.
3. Put the olives in a jar of the desired size (preferably glass jar). Try to make layers inside the jar: olives first, lemon, garlic, hot pepper and again the same thing.
4. Prepare a pickling concentrate in the following ratio: to each cup of water add a heaping teaspoon of salt, mix well until the salt dissolves in the water, pour into the jar until the jar is almost full, 2-3 cm before closing.
5. Add olive oil over the water layer.
6. Close tightly (it is best to place a plastic bag under the lid) and then seal
7. Place the jar in a dark place for at least a month.
8. Enjoy (:
Of course the hot pepper is not mandatory, those who want more hot can add pepper and those who do not then less or not at all.

The nutritional value does not include the olives. The credit for the recipe is to my dear husband - I'm just the sous-chef in this case. The amounts of salt and water are estimated amounts, it can vary depending on the size of the jar and the amount of olives.
