Olives, Italian Style

Olives, Italian Style created by kiwidutch

Ever since I went to Italy a couple of years ago, I've a real craving for good olives. I've bought just about every brand including visiting olive bars in the grocery store, They were all way too salty and vinegary. Then I found this recipe! These are so simple I didn't know if I should even post the recipe, but they are super good! A glass of wine, a couple of olives - I feel like I'm back in Florence!

    olives and garlic, always a good combination... I made this twice, both times using green olives without pits. The first time I followed the recipe exactly marinated then for 12 hours and found that it wasn't quite garlically enough for our galic loving tastes. Second time I doubled the recipe for a family birthday party and added 6 crushed garlic cloves and two small minced ones... Whoa ! knock your socks off garlic ! (probably becuase the olives were pitted and allowed more infiltration of the flavour & becuase they were in the mix for two days). The garlic lovers at the party adored them and some of the rest found them a little too strong, so next time I will tone it down a little to please the masses (not *too* much though LOL) An excellent little recipe to give your olives a little extra kick, other than straight out of the bag and same old same old. This is going on my party nibbles list and I will make it often. Please see my rating system, a very well deserved 4 stars :) UPDATE: my mega garliced olives have been in the fridge for a week.. the sharpness of the garlic is gone and instead a deep deep mellow intense flavour abounds, we can't keep our hands off them. Garlic lovers gather around... these have improved so much I'm giving upgrading them to 5 stars. Thanks!!!
