Lazy or what? Black olives fragrant version


I love these olives. They're my best friends up to 3 weeks if I make a lot of them. It's worth making more, as they always dissapear faster than estimated. Which is nice too. Great for a snack, great for an apero, they are always welcome here:)

Type of dish: starter, snack
Cost: medium
Difficulty: easy
Serves: 1-9
Time: 90 min
Preparation time: 10min

What you need to prepare this dish:

a large clean jar with lid, cutting board, knife,  colander


  • 1 jar of pitted black olives
  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 2 twigs of fresh rosemary
  • a bottle of olive oil
How to prepare:
 Drain the olives in the collander, shake around so they won't have more water in them. Cut the garlic in slices, strip the twigs of the rosemary leaves. Put some garlic and rosemary in the bottom of the jar, fill up a quater of the way with olives, put in some more garlic and rosemary, again with the olives, and repeat untill you have no more olives left. Next pour in the olive oil, gently tapping the jar to get the air out of the olives and the olive oil in them. Put the lid on, and store in a dark , cold place, not exactly the fridge, but it can do if your fridge doesn't go into minus temperatures.  After an hour, the olives already have a delicate garlicy- rosemary taste. Utter heaven!
