Olive Paste

img_0008.jpg
Mouli–the wonderful, cheap food mill which can turn forty olives into a jar full of delicious black goo (no pits!) that is spread like pauper’s caviar on everything.
Bread.
Crackers.
Well, not on lady fingers.
It also combines well with fresh white cheeses but turns them a dismaying mauve.
Maybe in this case segregation is a good idea, since the purple-black looks great next to the white goat cheese, cream cheese or whatevr else smiles at you from the cheese store.
Plain pasta becomes inky, add chopped fresh parseley, chives and a bit of butter. Salt and peppah.
Mmmm.
I plan to give some to my most rabid olive loving friends.
