Boozy Olives for #SundaySupper


This week's #SundaySupper event is a DIYers dream. 'Gifts from the Kitchen' is the theme for the event, so we're sharing recipes for homemade holiday presents. I've made and think these would make great gifts, too: Salted Caramel Sauce, Gin-Drizzled Gravlax, Cranberry-Clementine Infused Gin, Stone Fruit Jams, and Quick Pickled Asparagus.

But today, I'm sharing a recipe for Boozy Olives; I had intended to make Homemade Cocktail Onions, too, but life has been more chaotic than usual and I am still between two kitchens. I'll post the cocktail onion recipe later.

For the olives, go for a variety of colors. I used the green Castelvetrano, purple Alfonso, and black Niçoise. Be forewarned, this recipe takes 2 weeks to age; so, make them now to have them ready in time for the holidays. Cheers!


Ingredients fills 5 jam jars

  • 4 C olives
  • 1 1/2 C gin (I prefer Hendricks)
  • 1/4 C dry vermouth
  • 2" piece of Buddha's Hand Citron (click to read about Buddha's Hand), thinly sliced
  • juice from 1 lemon
  • 1 t mixed peppercorns

Procedure
Combine all ingredients plus 1 C water in a large mixing bowl. Make sure the olives are completely submerged. Let stand for at least 2 hours. Divide into smaller jars. Pour the liquid over the olives. Cap the jars. Wait 2 weeks and enjoy.


Here's what the rest of the crew made...I have so many things on my to-make list now! Totally inspired.

  3. I couldn't get here fast enough to check these out. I am a traditional martini gal. No fruits or fluff, just a straight up dry martini on the rocks with an olive or two. I have to make these olives for sure, great recipe!!

  13. So, if I ate the entire jar in one sitting, would I be intoxicated? It's a fair question, because I think that's what would happen if I were gifted a jar of these beautiful olives. What a terrific unique idea, I love it!

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
