Marinated Olives

Another great item to keep marinating in the frig for those quick and easy snacks or appetizer. We love all kinds of olives at our house and they are hard to keep.

  • 3Place ripe olives in a separate jar. Crush remaining garlic and cut pepper and chili into very fine strips, removing seeds. Add to olives with thyme. Cover with olive oil and seal jar.
