Spicy Garlic Olives

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Ma Field

These olives are great on an antipasto platter or tossed with other veggies in a pasta,rice or couscous dish. Super easy and what a nice gift for the gourmand on your list! When the olives are gone, use the leftover oil to make salad dressing or as a marinade starter.

Made these and put them in the refrigerator for 4 days. When I tried the first one it was very oily which I did not care for so I wiped them with a paper towel before trying another one. The garlic flavor was not very strong and they were not spicy to me, but I am used to eating extremely spicy foods so that may have been just me. Thanks Ma for letting me try your recipe. Made for Fall 08 PAC.
