 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      1/4  cup           extra virgin olive oil
    2      teaspoons     fennel seeds -- crushed
    4      small         bay leaves
    2      pounds        assorted Mediterranean olives
                         (such as Nicoise, Picholine,

    4                    garlic cloves, crushed with side of chef’s
 
 
 In a 1-quart saucepan, heat olive oil, fennel seeds, and bay leaves 
 until
 hot but not smoking over medium heat. Remove saucepan from heat; let 
 stand
 10 minutes.
 
 In large bowl, stir olive-oil mixture with olives, lemon peel, and 
 garlic.
 Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate olives at least 24 hours 
 to
 allow flavors to develop, stirring occasionally. (Or, in large self-
 sealing
 plastic bag, combine all ingredients, turning to coat olives well. 
 Seal
 bag, pressing out as much air as possible. Place on plate; 
 refrigerate,
 turning bag occasionally.)
 
 Spoon olives into jars for gift giving. Store in refrigerator for up 
 to a
 month.
 
 Yield: About 6 cup
