This year, the Homemade Stuffed Olives are part of the assortment of snacks that I will prepare for the Christmas holidays.
Homemade stuffed olives. 3 ideas
I have seen them in the markets and they seem very attractive to the eye; that they are tasty I have doubt; But the truth is that buying them is quite expensive (almost a euro per olive), so I decided to do some tests at home with ingredients that I had on hand. I loved the result and the price (it is worth making them homemade, really) and finally I have chosen these three types that I share with you today.
I always have olives at home
I really like olives. There are so many flavors and varieties! I usually have different types at home and it is frequent to find it in many of my recipes; for example, it is essential in the ARMOCHOLES IN MOJETE DE REDOVÁN or in the typical SALADILLA. And inside a vermouth, divine!
If you want to enjoy good and tasty homemade stuffed olives, you don’t need much; just buy the ingredients, some toothpicks-skewers and spend a few minutes assembling. I give you some ideas today, but keep in mind that you can make homemade stuffed olives with a thousand flavors and combining a thousand colors. The base is the olive; then everything is possible.
In the photos you see here, I have used the natural and pitted gordal olive. The best way to prepare them is to be guided by the photos; You already know that you can change the order of the ingredients if you think they are more attractive.
If you prepare them before, simply put them in a taper and in the fridge, but try to smear them with oil because they keep them better. Take them out of the fridge a while before; they should not be very cold.
Olives or olives?
And since we are talking about olives, many people wonder: is OLIVE or OLIVE better? Is it the same or is there a difference? Can I ask for “a plate of olives” in a bar or is it better to say “a plate of olives”? Well, the two names are correct and define the same product: the fruit of the olive or olive. The word “olive” and “oil” come from Arabic and the word “olive” and “oil” come from Latin. Simply in one place, more than one is usually used.
MY STUFFINGS FOR HOME STUFFED OLIVES. 3 TYPES (in assembly order)
1-Olive, pickle, loin stick (cold cuts), carrot strip and olive
ATTENTION. The carrot usually breaks when stabbing into the skewer; be careful. If you have time, it is better if you put it with a little vinegar first and it loses some stiffness
2-Olive, red pepper, Manchego cheese (tender or semi-cured; the curing is broken by pricking it with the toothpick) and olive
3-Olive, tomato, anchovy, pickle and olive
OTHER POSSIBLE STUFFINGS FOR HOME STUFFED OLIVES (always in mounting order)
-Olive, gherkin, York taquito, carrot slice and olive.
-Olives, gherkins, smoked salmon, green peppers and olives.
-Olive, pickled anchovy (you mess it up like a snail), red pepper and olive.
-Olive, green pepper, gouda (tender) cheese, red pepper and olive.
