Re: [Raw Food] New here
- Raw olives must be cured before they can be eaten, and the curing
medium--usually lye, brine, or salt--affects their flavor and texture and
the preserving medium is awful to the body. The best raw olives are sun
dried raw olives. If you can't find them locally, you can order on line.
I like to soak SD olives overninght in good grade olive oil, but if you're
staying 100% raw just soak in water.
