Chilli and Garlic Olives

I got this recipe from an old Itallian man, who had a Delicatessen in North Finchley. For years it was my secret recipe, I am letting out now. Try it.

Ingredients
1 large bottle of pitted green olives in brine
2 lemons
3 -4 cloves garlic (I used fresh green garlic; as we did not have any ordinary garlic)
2 tspn chilli flakes (adjust to taste)
2 tspns dried oregano
1 tablespoon olive oil

Method
1. Drain the olives and wash in plenty of cold water, place in a wide bowl
2. Slice half a lemon into small pieces, add to the olives
3. Chop the garlic into small pieces; add to the olives
4. Add the chilli flakes, oregano and the juice of 1 1/2 lemons, mix.
5. Marinate for 30 mins, and serve.
