Walnut Grove Recipes
Olives marinated in Chilli, Rosemary & Garlic
- 200g black olives
- 2 large fresh red chillies
- 3 cloves garlic
- 2 sprigs rosemary
- olive oil to cover the olives
- salt & pepper
1. Finely chop the rosemary, shred the chillies into long strips,
keep the seeds. Peel and slice the garlic.
2. Place all these ingredients
including the olives in a small saucepan, and cover with olive
3. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
4. Heat the saucepan until the oil comes to a gentle
simmer, and simmer for 3 minutes.
5. Remove from heat and allow to cool, place in
a sealed container in the fridge, and leave to continue infusing
for at least three days.
6. The olives are now ready to serve.
We serve these olives with pre-dinner drinks,
or as an accompaniment with salads of all descriptions. We marinate
all our olives in this way, because it gives a fantastic flavor.
Marinating olives like this, gives you the opportunity - if
you wish to - to take averagely prices olives and make them
taste like the most expensive olives! Don't restrict the favoring
to what we have suggested, just use the same technique with
the heating of the oil, and allowing it to cool and marinate
- experiment with your favorite flavours.
We have found this is a fantastic way of preserving
olives, and if they are kept in the fridge after this process,
in a sealed container, they will last for at least a month,
and improve in flavor. Make sure that the olives are always
covered in the oil.
