Marinated Olives

Here's a recipe for marinated olives, which I find go well with the rice wine we looked at yesterday:


Mixing bowl
Garlic press
Stirring spoon
Mortar and pestle
Measuring Jug


100g pitted green olives
100g pitted black olives
2 fat cloves of garlic, crushed
Juice of half a lemon
40 ml olive oil
80 ml white wine vinegar
Half a teaspoon of ground crushed dried chillies
2 tablespoons of chopped fresh basil


It couldn't be easier. Just put everything into a mixing bowl, and stir to mix, ensuring the olives are all thoroughly coated.
Leave in the fridge to marinate overnight.
Serve with aperitifs, or put into attractive jars for an inexpensive but thoughtful, hand-crafted gift.
They should keep well for at least a week, sealed in airtight containers in the fridge.

Best wishes, 2ndRateMind.
