Recipe: Scented Olives
Ingredients - uses around 1 kg, with a couple of handfuls spare to keep out to eat right away.
2 cups olives
1 clove garlic
2 hot peppers
1 quarter lemon
1 tbsp of one of the following: rosemary, fennel, coriander, oregano, thyme, bay leaves or orange rind
2 tbsps vinegar, either normal, but if you don't like too strong a vinegar taste, use apple or grape vinegar instead
1 cup olive oil
Mix the olives with the garlic, hot peppers, lemon and rosemary in a bowl.
Beat the olive oil and vinegar together until well mixed.
Divide the olives between the jars you are using and pour over the olive oil mix, making sure the olives are well covered, push the olives down the jar if necessary.
These can then be stored in the fridge or cupboard for quite a while.
