Does anybody here know what is the minimum weight of olives accepted by the factory for pressing into olive oil??

I don't think there is harem. My sister takes her olives from just one tree and last time they didn't charge her for pressing them.

Thanks for that, Ian. Do you know how much oil she got from the pressing??

We were up at 7am this bright and sunny morning in Koycegiz, we
picked 38 kilos of Olives and got 4 litres of oil, the pressing factory
don't charge but take a percentage 10% I think. You don't get the
oil from your own olives though.
The rest of the olives we brought out to Sogut with us and we intended
to do them in a brine mix, but they have been whisked away by the
mother of our turkish friend who insists on preparing them for us,
apparently the green olives are best hit with a stone and then boiling
water poured on and salt, the black olives should be cut with a knife
they will be ready to eatin 2 weeks :)
The larger olives are best for eating and the smaller ones apparently
produce more oil and are better pressed for oil
eh its been a day for learning :)
