    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      To pit the olives, you can use a cherry/olive pitter, but I've found that the olives frequently slip through the holes instead of just the pits.
    2. 2
      Another way to pit olives is to put them inside a folded kitchen towel and then bang on them with a mallet, cutting board, small frying pan, or whatever suits your fancy.
    3. 3
      Sure the olives get bruised, but what do you think is going to happen in the food processor?.
    4. 4
      Mixing raw garlic and olive oil provides an ideal breeding ground for the anaerobic bacteria which cause botulism.
    5. 5
      If I'm going to keep the paste around for a number of days, which I usually do, I'll mince the garlic, add it to the oil and then heat both in the microwave.
    6. 6
      I try not to cook the garlic too much in this manner- you just need to heat the oil and garlic up to 140 or 150 degrees for a while.
    7. 7
      Mix all of the ingredients in food processor.

      This turned out to be really good. I used it as a sandwich spread with Feta Cheese on top and took it with me to work. It tasted wonderful. The only change I will be making next time is to use less garlic :-). Thank you so much for posting.
