How to Make It
Half-fill a mason jar with olives. Fill the jar with oil. Store in a cool, dark place for at least 1 week. Pour the oil into a clean bottle, leaving enough oil behind to cover the olives. To serve or use the olives, remove them from the oil with a slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.
