David's Crown Room Olives

(That's what olives look like on the tree. Cool.)

City Girl and I know a guy who travels alot. Several years ago he showed up at Christmas, bearing gifts, and these olives were in the basket. O. M. G. They are wonderful on buffets, at parties, as gifts, and for an eye-popping snack. Turns out, he got the recipe from a guy in a lounge in an airport. Or something like that. Doesn't matter...these should be in your repertoire, your refrigerator and your tummy. They're good.

1 jar queen olives
1 tablespoon garlic salt
1 tablespoon celery salt
6 pinches freshly ground black pepper
6 shakes Tabasco
6 dashes Worcestershire
1 bottle Frank's hot sauce

Take the olives out of the jar, drain and remove the pimientos. Mix salts, pepper, Tabasco and worcestershire in the olive jar, fill one-fourth full with Frank's and shake well. Pack the olives back into the jar and fill with remaining Frank's Sauce. Shake well. Store upside down in the refrigerator, at least 48 hours but the longer they sit the better they get.

David takes out the pimientos, I don't. I'm lazy that way.

OMG I can't believe you have this recipe! I love, Love, LOVE these olives. Talk about a great gift food!

David got the recipe from the bartender in the Delta frequent flier private club lounge at I THINK Hartsfield.

So. Damn. Good.
