Jarjeer olives, also called in Syria Atoon. These olives are made when the olives are completely ripe, and usually already fallen off the tree. They are collected, washed, and then stored in wood boxes or burlap bags. A weight is put over the olives to get the liquids out of them and that is what makes an olive look curly. These olives are flipped over and stirred everyday for almost one month.
Olives then will taste sweeter with keeping a little bit of bitterness that is preferable by many!
Ingredients: Black olives, olive oil.
