    After washing and sorting: size, singulate, poke, and draw. Simple, really, and rather Gatling-like, don't you think?.
    Some of the most fascinating Rube Goldberg looking machinery can be found in agricultural processing. If you have the time, ask for a tour of a fruit or vegetable processor. It's compelling.

    It is truely amazing all the work that has to go into olives to make them safe to eat & pitting them ready for stuffing is yet another process.

    thanks for posting.

    There are scores of old driveways in California's Central Valley that are graveled with olive pits.

    Make sure you have more than one tree as they are wind polinated: they need to be fairly close to gether (about 10 metres is ok).
