1 medium jar green olives
1/2 t Thyme
1/4 t rosemary
2 bay leaves
1/2 t fennel seed
1/8 -1/4 t hot pepper flakes (optional)
Remove olives from the jar & drain well. Give a few to the kids to make room in the jar for the herbs. Lightly crush the olives before putting them back in the jar. Add the herbs and top the jar off with olive oil.
Shake well and leave on your counter for 24 hours before putting them in the fridge. These will keep for several weeks.
Let olives come to room temperature before serving.
