Today's Round Up: Appetizers

With Thanksgiving right around the bend many of us will be either hosting a large gathering or heading to one. If you need something to tide the masses over until the turkey is done, these will do the trick. This recipe comes from my friend Jessica's granny. (Any recipe created by Jeanette Kraft is sure to be one of the most delectable things you will eat!) It is not only easy, but ridiculously delicious and a perfect appetizer for any occasion.

Jeanette Kraft's Olives

* 3 cans whole black olives, drained (or 1 can black olives, 1 jar green unstuffed olives, and 1 jar kalamata olives)
* 2/3 Cup olive oil
* 1/3 Cup apple cider vinegar or rice wine vinegar
* 1 tsp. red pepper flakes
* 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
* 2 tsp. salt
* juice of 1/2 lemon
* zest of lemon
* 1 tsp. minced garlic
* 5-6 drops Tabasco sauce
* 1/2 dried thyme or a "clump" of fresh thyme


In large ziploc bag whisk oil, vinegar, lemon juice, lemon zest, Tabasco and all spices together. Add olives and marinate in refrigerator for at least one hour, preferably overnight. The longer they marinate, the better the flavor. Enjoy!If you want to join in on your own blog, simply link back to this blog and mention that you are partaking in Thursday's Recipe Rodeo.
