This Californian olive recipe was sent to me by some lovely Bed and Breakfast guests (now good friends), who come from Temecula in California. They have stayed with us a couple of times now and love this part of SW France, and the food and wine! They grow olives and avocados, and regularly send me a selection of "California Growers" recipe leaflets, magazines and cookbooks, as well as a box of avocados every year! Always a treat! I have made these scones/biscuits several times now for appetisers and nibbles, as well as for picnics - they are delicious when eaten warm with fresh butter, mustard and ham. I make these with French olives, but I am sure my friends don't mind!
