Homemade Habanero Stuffed Olives

Homemade Habanero Stuffed Olives


  • 1 jar queen size olives (pitted, pimento stuffed)
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced (approx 2 -- (3 to 5) tablespoons)
  • 3 habanero peppers, cored, cut into 1/4 -- (3 to 5) inch rings


  1. This makes approx. 25 olives.
  2. Drain liquid from olives, reserve.

  3. Remove pimentos from olives. The blunt end of a bamboo skewer poked through the small opening works OK.

  4. Stuff a piece of habanero into the olive cavity.

  5. Mash the pimentos and the garlic together.

  6. Pack the olives back into the jar, alternating with a layer of the garlic/pimento mix.

  7. Pour in the reserved liquid.

  8. Seal and refridgerate for 7 days (if you can wait that long, if not they have good flavor after 5 days).

  9. Some will be hotter than others, ranging from "That's an interesting flavor." to "Whooo-Weee!". This depends on how big a slice of hab, which end of the hab, hab type etc...
