You guys! This is AMAZING! I love olives so so much - and of course I wanted an excuse to add olives into more of my meals in different ways... and olive sprinkle is my new way to go! This way is in the airfryer, but the oven works too! Airfryer just is quicker and ensures the olives are super dried out.
1 large container of pitted Kalamata olives
- Place kalamata olives into the basket of the air fryer. Close air fryer and turn onto 180 degrees celsius for 50 minutes. If you're using an oven, turn oven onto 180 degrees celsius and cook for 1 hour and 20 minutes, or until the olives have dried out.
- Once they're out of the oven/airfryer, leave to lighty cool and then start chopping! Chop them roughly until they're finely diced. I would not recommend using a food processor incase it heats the olives and makes them mushy, and incase there is a wondering pip inside the olives - this can ruin the whole sprinkle!
- Store into a container for up to 6 weeks :)
