A Tasty Snack for All Occasions

Family gatherings are so fun, and a great way to pick up new recipes.  At every family event over at Erin’s house her mother would bring these amazing olives.  I finally asked for the recipe and have made them several times now.  Her mom gave us permission to use this recipe in our catalog of many.  They are a great Keto/Paleo appetizer or snack.  Everyone is always looking for snack ideas, and this is a great one you can leave out on the counter after school if you have olive eaters in the house!

Mince or chop your garlic and thyme.  I really prefer the fresh thyme on these.

These are beautiful and yummy to serve.  The garlic gives them a nice kick.  Bring them to room temperature before serving.  You can also invert the jar occasionally to let the spices cover all the olives.

We store these in a mason jar for a couple of weeks in the fridge if they last that long.
