Christina, they plump up and take on all that lemon-y goodness. Delicious, regardless of season. You'll make me blush, I swear...

Exactly, Johanna! As though it's unnatural to NOT know how the game works...far better to watch!

Well, Deb, that works out perfectly for me - I've got a Cloudy Bay in the pantry and will get it out to chill. Thanks for the advice!

Thanks for noticing Callipgyia. Now, crickets in my olives...they would add a certain 'crunch' factor that's missing. Your sporting skills sound much like my own.

Ohh I was expecting to find little black crickets nestled within the olives! BTW, love the new banner and this photo. I too was quite uncoordinated in team sports and my punishment for making fun of my Phys Ed teacher was for him to volunteer me to "demonstrate" skills for each new sport we learned. Oh, the torture and shame of it all!

2008-01-23T09:04:00.000+10:30

Being in your part of the world, the wine I would choose would be a Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand, Cloudy Bay would be my first choice, and it would be nicely chilled. I would choose a Sauvignon Blanc from your area because they are so well structured and I think would pair with the saltiness of the olives and the citrus that you have added. You are lucky to have such great wine country at hand!

2008-01-22T22:15:00.000+10:30

I am with you about netball - I got to high school only to realised I was one of 4 girls in my class who had never played netball - and I continued to avoid it as much as possible - the best thing about sport seems to be sitting watching it with lots of nice food like your lovely olives :-)

In that first picture, with the greens, purples and distant yellows, I think you've created a masterpiece. I swear, your photography keeps getting better and better.

Living in an olive-growing area, I have constant access to good olives of great variety, and olives appear in many of my meals. Right now, I'm in love with tiny little nicoise tossed with crushed red pepper and lots of garlic. Oh, my! However, I have never tried baking them as you do here--I'll have to try this, and soon.

2008-01-22T08:38:00.000+10:30

No photo, Deb...I think Mr Ashby, womens cricket 'master'extrordinarie, was glad to see the back of us! I did look around the house for some cricket gear, but it seems we gave it all away. Now, what sort of wine would you recommend, o, guru?

What, no photo of you out in the field playing cricket?
Lucy you are my spot today for learning something new - I have never heard of baking olives! I love olives and there is always a bowl of them on our table when we have guests. I will be trying this one. I suppose the heat really intensifies the flavors! And yes I agree, a glass of wine would be a perfect match!

2008-01-22T08:28:00.000+10:30

My pleasure Mansi - looking forward to your round-up!

Laurie, I'd never tried it until late last year. Can't be stopped now...

You're welcome aforkfulofspaghetti - hope you love them!

Perfect for all seasons really, Sophie. That purple is quite something, isn't it?

Rosa, I know how much you love lemon and think you'll want that extra squeeze at the end.

Patricia, it's very, very unusual for me to post a 'fast' recipe - LOL!

Lisa, I do that often as well. One for the pot, one for me...you know, I'm not a beer fan either - better and, dare I say, a little more sophisticated, with a nice glass of wine.

I knew someone would come through for me, Susan. The ones I adore in this mix are the tiny little ones. Small amount of flesh, yes, but very tasty.

Wendy, I was 'lucky' enough to have short legs. Thank goodness for that - I had NO idea how to play netball and, at my school, it was simply assumed that all females knew how to play netball...I've never been much of a 'joiner' anyway. Love olives...much more than I should!

I could quite happily eat olives until I popped. Will have to make these some Friday night in the near future.
And I hear you on the sport issue. I avoided P.E. whenever possible in High School though I was always forced to play netball and basketball due to my 5"10 height:
"Just stand at the net with your hands up, lanky!"
Grrrrrrrr. Still detest team sports! :)

2008-01-22T06:50:00.000+10:30

"Black Olives and Cricket" sounds like the title of a food memoir. Very evocative.

I couldn't let it go; I did some research on those fat boys you did not know the name of. Looks like they are blonde kalamata. I would have thought cerignola. No matter. I'm in love!

2008-01-22T06:31:00.000+10:30

I could eat olives every day of the week. I have to stop myself from eating my whole supply when I am pitting olives for a dish.

I'm not much into beer, but I bet these baked olives would taste awesome with wine.

2008-01-22T02:18:00.000+10:30

They look delish and I'm glad to see that they're easy to put together, Lucy!

2008-01-22T00:09:00.000+10:30

What a gorgeous photo! The olives almost look like plums. With this much lemon involved, I know I'll love this recipe.

2008-01-21T21:35:00.000+10:30

Wow - those purple olives are an amazing colour!

I've never really thought of baking olives - it sounds good for those of us in the middle of Winter as well as you guys in cricket season

2008-01-21T20:34:00.000+10:30

Oh my. I love olives - but have never 'done' them like this before. Now I'm going to have to! Thank you for sharing the recipe.

I absolutely love baked olives -- I never liked Kalamatas until I started baking them. This is a great version and perfect for Mansi's event.
