It is the height of olive picking season here in Marrakech and we've just been to our local olive press to collect our oil. We have a few trees in the garden and have a miniscule production of around 30 litres of oil. Nothing compared to our neighbours but enough for domestic use.
Above is a little reportage of the process. Before crushing the olives they mix them with lemon, thyme and salt to enhance the flavour of the oil.
