“An easy marinade of garlic, lemon, thyme, and a dollop of the North African hot sauce harissa make these green olives memorable. If you can, prepare the olives ahead—they improve with age. From Epicurious. Cooking time does not include the 24 hour marinating period.”

Directions

  1. Cover olives with water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil, then drain.
  2. Cook garlic in oil in a 10-inch heavy skillet over medium heat until garlic is golden, about 2 minutes. Add tomato paste and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Stir in water, harissa, thyme, and olives and simmer briskly, stirring occasionally, until liquid is thickened and coats olives, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in lemon slices. Transfer to a shallow dish and marinate, chilled, at least 24 hours.
  3. These will keep for 1 month if kept in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
