Second in my mini series of recipes (see olives marinated in chillies and oregano here) after my recent Olive it! cookery class experience, is a recipe for olives marinated in ginger, cinnamon and cardamom. Sound like a funny combination? I thought so too but they are delicious, so trust me on this one!

You’ll need:

  • 1 jar or tin of ‘turning colour’ or black olives
  • 100ml of mild olive oil
  • 2 cardamom pods
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 kaffir lime leaves
  • 2cm of ginger

Method:

  1. Drain the olives from the brine and place them in a bowl.
  2. Peel and thinly slice the ginger, crush the cardamom pods, cinnamon stick and the kaffir lime leaves, before mixing it all in with the olives and olive oil.
  3. Leave to stand for 20 minutes then enjoy the freshly marinated olives or keep in the fridge for up to a month in a tightly sealed container.
