There are four types of curing; water-curing, brine-curing, lye-curing and dry-curing for oil-cured olives and all methods involve the addition of a lot of salt. Water-curing involves soaking the olives in water for a number of weeks and brine-curing involves placing them in a salty brine and allowing them to ferment for several months.

The lye is fully washed off before the olives go to market.
