Step 1: Preheat a fan forced oven to 180C.

Step 2: Drain the brine from the jar of olives. Place the olives into a mixing bowl and add in the lemon zest, Extra Virgin Olive Oil and crush the bay on your hand and add into the bowl.

Step 3: Mix together well, then place onto a shallow sided baking tray and place into the preheated oven to roast for 8 minutes. The olives will start to shrivel up which is normal.

Step 4: Remove the olives from the oven and give them a gentle toss. Set aside to cool to room temperature before serving.

Tip: Serve with cured meats, grilled seasonal vegetables or with semi hard cheese’s. These also work well when flavoured with fennel seeds, fresh oregano leaves or a drizzle of red white and orange zest.
