Press pure fresh olive oil from dried olives. Simple, fast and produce the oil when it suits you. The dried olives have a long shelf life!
How to press olive oil from dried olives. Use the PITEBA nutcracker to crush the olives (the kernel remains whole). Then dry the olives in a food dryer until they are completely dry. Add 100 ml of water to 1 kilo of dried olives to be sure they contain exactly 10% moisture. Wait 1 day until all the water has been absorbed. Now you can press the olives (including the kernels) with the PITEBA oil press and the D2 cap. Press at room temperature and use the burner with a very small flame.
