Reviews for Spiced Olives
"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!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
"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."
