Marinated Olives?

I frequently make a dish of marinated olives using drained black olives, chopped garlic, olive oil, flavored vinegar, salt, and a little sprinkle of Italian herbs.

But I'd like to make something like those wrinkled black marinated olives you can get at speciality stores. I don't know what they're called (other than marinated olives) but they're wrinkled, and the flesh is much firmer than regular black olives.

Anyone have a home-made recipe?

Could it be a specific type of olive thats giving them the wrinkled appearance rather than the marinating itself?

Take a look there and see if any look familiar.


Oh and by the way, your recipe sounded delicious. One of my personal favourites is simply to marinate Kalamata olives in thyme, lemon juice and a bit of garlic.

Thanks for the link. They look just like the Morrocan dry-cured olive, although they say that type is too bitter for snacking.

The French "Nyons" olive is similar. It's salt-cured. It did occur to me that salting the olives might make the flesh firmer, but the ones I buy don't taste too salty.

I'll try searching for salt-cured olives and see what I find.
