I like preserving olives, the step I like best is soaking them in water for weeks, with my little boy who reminds me every day to change the water. I would remember anyway (how could I forget when they are in a big laundry bucket on the kitchen floor?), but it is just so nice to hear him say "Mamma, did you change the water today?". He takes his olives very seriously.
This image is for Black and White Wednesday, a weekly blogging event created by Susan of The Well-Seasoned Cook and for the coming week hosted by Sihi of Wondering Ladle. The title of the photo is: soaking olives.
I am also adding another photo to today's post, not food, but I photo that I took a few years ago in Modena, my provincial city. And I am thinking of everyone who is suffering in the area because of the earthquakes.
