Soak the olives in water to cover for at least 1 week. Make sure you change the water everyday. This is to remove the bitterness of the olives.
Once the olives have soaked for a week, strain the water and add clean fresh water to the bowl.
Place all the solid ingredients (herbs and olives) into an airtight glass or ceramic jar. Pour in enough of the salted water to cover the olives. Close the jar and ensure it is airtight.
Store in a cool dry place for at least 2 weeks before eating your first olive.
Serve with drinks.
