Olive nere alla napoletana (neopolitan black olives)

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
½ pounds Black olives; (gaeta)
Olive oil
Lemon juice
1 pinch Majoram
1 pinch Oregano

The small Gaeta olives, highly prized by Italians, are available in specialty food stores. Greek or Moroccan style black olives may be substituted, but the flavor of the Gaeta is matchless. Pit the olives and place in a shallow dish. Pour in enough oil to barely cover and add lemon juice to taste. Season with majoram and oregano and stir gently to combine the flavors. Cover and store in a cool place for several hours or overnight, stirring occasionally. Do not refrigerate!! Serves 6.
