these are the olives that they use in pizzas accross this country, small black, mild, sliced, in liquid. i have a half gallon or so. is there any kind of tart or pie, pizza or calzone or turover or phylo encassed pastry that you can recommend? what about an olive puree with maybe achovies? or a vegan olive puree with other thigns to be used as a dip or spread along with greek italian or middle eastern types of breads and mezzes/anti pastos. what would cubans or mexicans or latins and caribbeans do with olives? maybe an interesting lasagna? something with salted cod or anchovies? somethign with ricotta and perhapse other cheeses? what could be done in bread form incorporating LOTS of them? what about a marination along with other marinated veggies like eggplant or artichoke or both? maybe i could make a lot of italian tomato sauce ad freeze it. do u guys have good recipes? Somethign i ca make in bulk for later use, to freeze would be superb. or osmething so awesome like individual french or italian tartlets or pies that they ca be sold/give away.
