    The olives add a tangy surprise that keeps you wanting more. This is fabulous served with a good olive oil.

    1 ounce fresh yeast (or 2 teaspoons dry yeast)
    1 cup warm water
    4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
    1 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt
    3 1/2 cups organic bread flour
    1/2 cup chopped kalamata olives, pitted
    2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary


1. Dissolve the yeast in the warm water.
2. Add the olive oil and salt to the yeast and water.
3. Add 3 cups of the flour, the olives, and the rosemary.
4. Gradually add more flour until you can work the dough.
5. Knead for 8 to 10 minutes, or until a tight ball forms.
6. Place the dough in a large bowl, cover, and let it rise for1 to 2 hours, or until doubled in size.
7. Punch down, shape, and let the dough rise again for 30 minutes.
8. Bake at 350F for 20 to 30 minutes, or until the loaf is golden brown and cooked through.

    Tasty & fun quarantine project. Can be made with or without olives - I've done both, according to taste. Did in regular oven but not sure if it would work in a bread machine... - 3/27/21
