Then drain the olives completely. Put olives in a large, glass airtight jar with a lid, and add enough fresh water to cover the olives. For every 8 oz (250 ml) of water that it takes to cover them, stir in 1/2 teaspoon of salt.
Then also add, to taste:
whole black peppercorns;
dash of a dry red wine for color;
bit of oil to float on top.
Put the lid on the jar, and leave on countertop for 2-4 weeks. Test regularly after 2 weeks for readiness.
