My family loves olives, especially stuffed. Whenever I go to the Specialty Store, the stuffed olives are so expensive. Sometimes as much as $10 a container. So I decided to make them myself. Here is what I did. My sister told me her girlfriend actually went one step further and pan fried the olives. So I tried that. They were a hit! I hope you give them a try, you will not be disappointed. Recipes and Photos: My own
