Fancy Marinated Olives

This version of marinated olives takes a bit more work than the Orange-Fennel version I just shared. But people will love the sweet and tangy flavors combined with salty olives.

2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar

1 tablespoon brown sugar

1 shallot, sliced

1.5 - 2 cups mixed brine cured olives

2 strips lemon zest, cut with a vegetable peeler

2 strips orange zest, same

1 bay leaf

1/2 of a 3 inch cinnamon stick, crushed

8 whole allspice, crushed

8 black peppercorns, crushed

2 garlic cloves, crushed and sliced (maybe I was in a destructive mood when i created this recipe, what with all this crushing going on).

4 tablespoons olive oil

  1. Heat vinegar, sugar and shallot until reduced to about 1 tablespoon of liquid.

  2. Combine all ingredients up to garlic and oil.

  3. Heat garlic in oil for 30-45 seconds, until it just begins to color. Immediately pour garlic and oil over olives and mix thoroughly.
