- Save time by peeling garlic cloves in the thermo mixer. Here are the instructions: How To Peel Garlic in Your Thermo Mixer
- For a different flavour, add a drizzle balsamic vinegar reduction on top of the olives just before serving. We love this recipe from Super Kitchen Machine: Balsamic Vinegar Reduction
- For a spicy flavour, add chopped chilli at step 1. Use the chilli seeds for an extra hot spice or if preferred, deseed the chilli first.
- The olives taste delicious warm but they can also be refrigerated and eaten cold.
- The flavour of the olives will mature more and more the longer they are left to marinate in the fridge. Cover the olives with cling wrap or store them in an air tight container before refrigerating. Eat the olives cold or reheat them just before eating.
