Recipe from Ryland, Peters, and Small's Tapas Cookbook. These olives need to marinate at room temperature for 6 days prior to serving, so plan ahead. They make a wonderful appetizer for any party and are perfect gifts around the holidays (put them in pretty square glass jars that you find at craft stores)!
