Roasted Kalamata Olives

ali Bresnahan


This comes from (my niece) Laurie Constantino's cookbook, "Mediterranean Cooking in Alaska". About the olives, Laurie says:
"Roasting deepens the flavor and softens the sharp brininess of Kalamata olives, and also firms the olives' texture. They are best served warm, but even when cold, baked olives are a special treat.
