I agree with Crafty Lady that these babies have some real pucker power--I was amazed at how much the vinegar flavor takes over the briny flavor of the olive. I really enjoyed these, as did my friends for whom I made them. I think they would be absolutely lovely with haloumi or another firm cheese! Next time I might try making them with balsamic vinegar instead of red wine vinegar, just out of personal preference. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT 7, for the Vivacious Violets.
I love this recipe! It is so garlicky and spicy that you just have to keep eating one after another. Thanks for sharing a real keeper. Made for ZWT7-Italy.
This is such a great recipe as it is easy and quick to make and takes good old olives turning them into a gourmet condiment. The garlic, red wine vinegar, thyme and chilli work so well together in this lending the olives a wonderful spicy flavour.
This is great for gift-giving and also to keep on hand yourself for some entertaining.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this great recipe with us, UmmBinat!

The red wine vinegar and lemon juice really gives these olives some pucker power. It was a nice change of pace from the usual black olives. Made for ZWT5.
Here's another recipe in which I cut back on the use of chilies, this time using just one, but otherwise following the recipe! A recipe definitely worth keeping, & I plan to make these for one of the monthly groups I host (in another 10 days)! [Tagged, made & reviewed while in Spain with the ZWT5]
We tryed the first olives just after marinating them. Most of thzem are now in a jar, we will try them after one week or so.
They are delicious! The condiment as well and we will use the marinade as salad dressing or simply with bread!
Wonderful olives! The garlic works so well. I love this recipe and it's so easy. Next time I want to try combining green, black, and brown olives. Thanks so much for this recipe UmmBinat.
