Thumbnail of Olives recipe

Olives are imported to this country from Spain, Portugal, Italy, and France; those grown in the Lucca country are esteemed the most palatable: being perfectly sweet, and free from any strong flavour, they are served for dessert in glasses, with a little of their own liquor in which they are preserved.

Olives being first peeled carefully from the stone, are filled in with pounded anchovy, and served with a little oil as an appetiser at the commencement of dinner, or handed round after cheese, the better to relish a glass of old port.
