MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 10, 2012

I've been making this recipe for several years a d I love them. I double the recipe because I "pick" on them all day and wouldn't have enough left to serve for whatever the occasion I'm making them for. DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 30, 2010

I have had this recipe for at least 20 years. My sons, from a young age to adults, have requested the "Christmas olives" every year. I agree with Dean Schrock, the longer the olives marinate, the better. You won't be disappointed.
