Marinated Olives

olives

What you will need:

1) 1 lb olives (green, black, mixture and preferably from Greece, Italy, or Spain)

2) 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil (this is good for you, very good)

3) 4 cloves garlic, crushed

4) Several sprigs of fresh time or rosemary

5) 2 bay leaves

6) 1 tsp hot red pepper flakes (optional)

Directions:

1) Mix all ingredients and transfer to a jar or serving bowl. You can serve these immediately, although they are better if they sit, covered and refrigerated, for a day or two. They will keep, improving flavor, for several weeks, but bring to room temperature before serving.

My take/Etc.

YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMYYYYYYY!! You can’t go wrong with this one, not if you are in college. It requires very few ingredients, a little amount of time and is extremely inexpensive. Let me just say, however, I am a huge fan of garlic. I just can’t get enough. I am all about garlic, you can never have too much. So, as someone who is a garlic fanatic, I like to add extra extra garlic (and that is my particular preference).
