Title: CURING OF HOME-GROWN OLIVES~ GREEK STYLE Categories: Greek, Info/tips, Ethnic Yield: 1 Servings

If you own an olive tree and do not want to go through the complicated process of leaching olives with chemicals, follow one of these ancient Greek methods to get rid of the bitterness.

SALTING METHOD: Place washed olives in a wicker basket or a plastic container with holes. Cover with medium-coarse salt. Set basket in sun and protect with a cheesecloth cover. Twice a day for a week, toss olives to redistribute them, until the bitter fluid is drawn from them. Bring olives in at night to prevent mold.

WATER METHOD: Cover washed olives with a solution of salt water - 1 cup salt to each quart water - in a crock or glass jar. Place a weight, such as a small plate or washed rock, to keep olives submerged. Olives may remain in this brine for months. Marinate in Olive Marinade before serving.

Curried Salmon Steaks

4 each steaks salmon 1/4 cup butter 2 cup cream sour 1 pepper to taste

1 cup onion chopped

2 tablespoon curry powder 1 salt to taste

1 curry to taste

Pour the sauce over the salmon and serve immediately.

Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry each poppadom, not too rapidly or they will lose their shape and curl up unevenly. Cook until they are crisp and the edges have curled up. Pile equal amounts of the salmon curry onto each poppadom and serve on individual plates, garnished with a little salad and lime slices.

Cuttlefish With Spinach

1 karen mintzias

750 gm cuttlefish or squid

1/3 cup olive oil 1 water 1 salt

1 freshly ground black pepper 750 gm spinach 1 cup chopped spring onions 1/2 lemon (juice only)

Cuttlefish (soupies) as distinct from squid (kalamaria) are preferred for this dish, though either may be used. Cleaning cuttlefish can be a rather messy business as these marine molluscs have an ink sac from which the pigment sepia is obtained. The sac ruptures easily and is usually rupturedby the time you purchase them, so don't be put off by their colour - the ink rinses off easily.

Rinse cuttlefish or squid and remove head, attached tentacles and intestines; discard intestines. Pull out cuttle bone or fine transparent bone if squid is being prepared. Pull off fine skin and rinse. Remove eyes and beak from head, leave head attached to tentacles and pull or rub off skin from tentacles, or as much skin as will easily come off.

Slice hood or body into strips. If squid are large, slice head and tentacles - cuttlefish tentacles are usually small and these are left intact. Place prepared cuttlefish or squid in pan and set on medium heat. Cover and cook for 15 minutes in its own juice. Add half the oil, just enough water to cover, and salt and pepper to taste, cover and simmer gently for 45 minutes or until tender.

Meanwhile trim spinach and wash thoroughly. Drain well and chop leaves andstalks coarsely.

Heat remaining oil in a separate pan and gently fry spring onion until soft, add spinach and stir over heat until it wilts. Add spinach mixture to cuttlefish or squid with lemon juice and adjust seasonings with salt andpepper. Cover and simmer for further 10-15 minutes. Serve hot. From: "The Complete Middle
