      I went one CITRUS step further Caro and used some of my wonderful Lemon Thyme for this! I made the full amount as we are BIG olive fans and stored the excess from a frenzied and greedy olive lunch in a jam jar in the fridge! Excellent as I suspected, you cannot go wrong with olives, lemon and thyme, the black peppercorns just revved it up a notch. Merci encore, made for the Herb of the Month in the French Forum, which was...........................................................THYME! FT:-)
