After an exciting finish to the inaugural year of the Steemit IronChef contest, hosted by @progressivechef, we're right back in for the second year, with the OLIVE as the star ingredient.

I love olives. Pun intended, or whatever you want. They come in so many varieties and flavors, with different brines and oils bringing out their complex flavors. I would have to say that I love some oil-cured olives, and olives stuffed with spicy peppers always hit the spot, but on the chance I can find some of the lighter green, milder Castelvetrano olives, I will gladly eat dozens.

Well I am already very late in the cycle for submitting this entry, so I'll simply post my handwritten recipes and photos and get on my merry way!

For this week's contest, I made

  • Olive biscotti
  • Olive, dill, and goat cheese spread, and
  • Olive, smoked onion, and pomegranate relish over beer-battered sardines and beer-battered olives.

Here's how it turned out (delicious), and also my proof photo!

Perfect appetizer!

By the way, your handwritten recipes are waaay more fun to read :D

haha good! I'm glad because it saves me loads of time over retyping them!

Also, i got a fun new notebook that i can write in and scan to my computer and then wipe off with water to start fresh - so i'm saving paper too! :) Thanks girlllll

Neat, that sounds like an awesome notebook as well. I hope you win the challenge AGAIN!

now if only i could manufacture time....any ideas?

Maybe they didn't announce the winner yet? I am not following the contest so I don't know how far you're behind with the entry, regardless it is an awesome idea to prepare olives, I've never done anything with them before, other than adding to salads haha

I just meant i need more time in life to be able to post each week ;)

OH! I see! Me too :D

Beautiful like always! Two thumbs up!

I loved your recipe @jaymorebeet
And you'll have an opportunity for the other entrance
You are very creative, this recipe was a beautiful presentation
Have a good night

Thanks @gladysstillwagon for your kindness and support - i'm so glad that you like these olive recipes!

these recipes are yummie ...will need to try especially the beer battered hehe

this was my first try doing a beer batter - SO simple!!!! try it for sure!

Absolutely love your handwritten notes @jaymorebeet and that food looks absolutely delectable!

Thanks @foodflaneur. Those notes are a true shortcut for me! Saves the time of rewriting :)


Hello my friend! Welcome to this new season of SIC! How I am happy to read your entry...well I knew it would be high level as usual and I do confirm...very high level indeed!

Those crispy sardines are so tempting!Wow!

Olive olives, too! It sure sounds southern when I say that slow. As a kid, I hated olives. It's funny how our tastes change. Thank goodness I don't yearn for that Cap'n Crunch cereal anymore, too. That olive biscotti looks great, especially with the goat cheese spread! And I would eat a lot of those battered sardines, I think. When I lived in Michigan, I'd net smelt, at night in the rivers at snowmelt time, and do something similar. They are a traditional Great Lakes food. That's good eating! Where do you get your sardines? I've never seen them fresh in a store.

Congratulations! You won! 🥂🍾
