Bake it: Marinated Kalamata Olives

Look for un-marinated olives in bulk at your local grocery store. The pic above is from Goldern Farms market near my house. I buy tons of produce from them. Most stores will stock olives in cans or jars. This is a great way to add a little flavor and zest to them.

Pour boiling water over the olives. Scoop out the olives and transfer to a storage container. Discard the water. This cleans the olives and removes any waxy or oil buildup.

Chop 3 cloves of garlic and slice 1 clove.

Add a the garlic, a few peppercorns and a few red pepper flakes to the olives.

Add a generous amount of olive oil to the olives. Toss to coat.

Refrigerate overnight. Toss a few times to keep moist. Serve at room tempature, scoop out the olives from the oil with a slotted spoon. Delicious on their own or with hummus and pita.
