    BarbryT's Note:

    I love the lemon olives I can buy at Central Market in Shoreline, just north of Seattle. This recipe from Fine Cooking, #55 has more flavors involved but looks quite similar. Use oil- or brine-packed olives. (The lemons are for zest only, so after zesting, juice the lemons and save the juice for another use.)

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      If using brine-packed olives, drain them.
    2. 2
      If you wish, you may whack them with a (clean) hammer or rolling pin to "crack" them so the seasonings penetrate further.
    3. 3
      In a medium bowl, combine the olives, salt, peppercorns, bay leaves, herb sprigs, fennel seeds, garlic, and red pepper flakes (if using).
    4. 4
      Zest the lemons in whatever size zest you like: a mix of finely grated zest for the brightest flavor and larger strips for color is nice.
    5. 5
      Add the zest and oil to the olives and mix well. Pour and scrape into a covered jar and refrigerate for 12-24 hours to let the flavors mingle.

      YUM! And I haven't even marinated them yet. Having a tapas party tonight and bet they'll be a hit.

      DELICIOUS! (And it is soooo easy to make!) Made it the day before yesterday and enjoyed yesterday, with cubbed cheese and a margarita! My husband also loved. Will be making for when our friends come to have dinner with use. Thanks for such a delicious recipe.

      These were divine and were served on New Year's Day. The only thing I left out was the fennel, since I don't care for it. I even took some, wrapped them in a foil packet, and heated in the oven for about 10 minutes, which was really tasty. I will be serving this again! Made for PRMR Tag Game.
