How to Pit Olives

Let’s get right to it…

Pitting olives.

Easy?  You betcha!

The best olives for recipes are usually salty, cured olives.  Definitely not the kind you get in a can.  Pick up some Kalamata olives and try this out.

Then make something Greek…just ’cause!

2.  With a large chef knife (or cleaver), press down hard with the edge to flatten the olive.

When you push down on the squashed olive, the pit will come out and you’re done.

 

Easy peasy lemon squeezy…
