    Orange and Fennel Marinated Olives Recipe




    Makes 1 1/2 cups


    Ingredients
    •1 cup large green brine-cured olives, preferably Sevillano and Castelvetrano
    •½ cup kalamata olives
    •½ tsp. fennel seeds
    •1/8 tsp. crushed red chile flakes
    •2 (4-inch) strips fresh orange zest (removed with a vegetable peeler)
    •1 cup extra-virgin olive oil
    Directions

    If you're able to find Sevillano olives, rinse them under cold water for 5 minutes, then soak them in cold water for 2 hours. Drain well.

    Combine the olives in a medium bowl.

    Toast the fennel seeds in a small skillet over medium heat until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the chile flakes and toast until just fragrant, about 30 seconds. Remove from the heat and add the orange zest and oil. Steep until cool.

    Pour the oil mixture over the olives. Cover and marinate at room temperature for 6 hours or refrigerate for up to 3 days.
    And this shall be a sign unto you: Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, Lying in a manger.

    Trini Mango Chow and Mango Chutney

    Can be used as relish or dip

    (This is your basic chow recipe but you can add whatever you want to spice it up)

    Ingredients:

    2 full, half ripe mangoes, peeled, chunked
    2 lemons/limes, juiced
    2 cloves garlic, crushed
    1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
    1 tbsp olive oil
    Salt, pepper (or hot peppers) to taste



    Method:
    Combine all ingredients in a glass bowl and keep adjusting seasonings to taste until you're satisfied with the flavour.

    Instead of mangoes, you can use any of the following:

    half ripe peaches or nectarines
    cucumbers
    star fruit ("five fingers" or "carambola")
    green guavas
    granny smith apples
    or any crunchy, sour fruit.

    Mango Chutney

    This uses the same ingredients as Mango Chow
    but you throw it all in a blender or use an electric 'magic wand' or food processor to grind it up.
    Adjust seasonings to taste.
    Substitute green tomatoes for mangoes.
    Keep unused portion in a clean jar/bottle in the fridge.
    Use as relish.
    And this shall be a sign unto you: Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, Lying in a manger.
