  1. The small Gaeta olives, highly prized by Italians, are available in specialty food stores. Greek or Moroccan style black olives may be substituted, but the flavor of the Gaeta is matchless.

  2. Pit the olives and place in a shallow dish. Pour in enough oil to barely cover and add lemon juice to taste. Season with marjoram and oregano and stir gently to combine the flavors. Cover and store in a cool place for several hours or overnight, stirring occasionally. Do not refrigerate!! Serves 6.
