Black Olive & Raisin Paste / Dip

Total Time

If you're a fan of sweet & savour combinations, this is the olive paste for you. This is another one of those very unusual dip combinations but it works so well together. I serve it with water crackers and fresh carrots / celery. Cooking time is processing time

I was going to make regular olive dip for my book club but luckily found this one first. I had some larger raisins left from Christmas baking and used those. The dip was delicious and different. I served it with store-bought bread sticks and carrots, but next time I will make some really good crusty bread to do it true justice. Thanks for a keeper.

I made this for a party and it was great! You don't really need to add the salt and pepper.
