They’ve got lots of salt too, so it’s probably for the best, health wise, not to eat them. For me, anyway. I’m still shocked that lye is used. Such a horrible, toxic chemical. That’s why I don’t use “regular” soap.Well, they get washed and washed so that the lye is removed, so I think they’re okay to eat.
They’re amazing aren’t they? I wonder why they need to be so tall with some sort of thing for a pulley.
Oooo... I'd love to see the inside! Are they stacked on top of each other... they seem awfully tall. But then the bottom and middle sections wouldn't have a slanted roof if you took the 3 sections apart.
Nice!! One of my dream homes is a tree house... (but with a roof, of course )We have miles and miles of hiking trails outside our door since we live adjacent to a preserved wilderness area and the Santa Fe National Forest. I figured I’d seen about everything in the immediate area, but look what I found today down in an arroyo a mile or so from our house.

I bet the stairs are almost vertical in those! Never saw them before, loved it
I did not know that lye was used to cure olives. My port city was largely settled by Italian fishermen. Olive trees everywhere - so if you don’t have a tree (we do) you can easily keep yourself in olives from all the roadside, park side, every side trees ! I have cured olives (only black) via ‘change plain water every day for two weeks, then change salt water once a week for six weeks’ or somesuch — I just recall that it took a very long time. Nice olives at the end. Though I messed up a bit with sealing them up in olive oil instead of brine.That’s good to know... but I can see it being difficult to determine how the olives have been cured (especially those in the salad bar area of grocery stores.*)
*Well, if we ever have salad bars again.....
