Marinated olives

This recipe is for spicy marinated olives. Serve them as part of an appetizer or to accompany a simple lunch. They also make a nice gift.



1. Place the fennel seeds, cumin seeds, and ground cardamom in a small sauté pan set over low heat. Toast the spices, stirring frequently, until they begin to release their aroma, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat.

2. Place the olives, olive oil, orange zest, garlic, and red pepper flakes in a large bowl. Add the toasted spices and stir with a large spoon to evenly coat the olives. Allow to marinate at room temperature for 24 hours. Discard the garlic and transfer the olives to a large jar. Add enough olive oil to cover, seal with a lid, and store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Serve at room temperature.
