"Grandad's Tapenade"

1kg pitted black olives
6 sundried tomatoes- chopped
1/2 cup chopped almonds (toasted in oven / skillet before chopping)
4-5 anchovy fillets
2-4 teaspoons capers
2 large cloves garlic
1 teaspoon oregano (fresh pref. But dried is OK)
1 teaspoon thyme
1/2 lemon juiced
1 generous teaspoon sweet chilli sauce (or use chilli paste to taste)
olive oil

Combine all ingredients (but olive oil) and process in a food processor. You can either have texture or make it smooth. It is a personal choice

Stir in olive oil until the taste and consistency is right for you.

Place in covered container and refrigerate. Needs approx' 3 days to 'mature' before using.

We use it on wood fired/ rustic type crusty breads and as antipasti
