I bought some tapenade for after-choir snacks. Though it a bit dear at $6.95 for a half cup jar.
So I decided to make it myself with the following results (numbers on the right are dollars - the black olives and olive oil are the dearest of the lot):
|1/4||cup||2||oz||extra virgin olive oil||1.10|
|Yields about 15 cups||4.77|
At first it was a little flat. And then I remembered the garlic. :-)
When you do the math it turns out the little jar is 439% more expensive than doing it yourself.
Maybe I should go into the business of making tapenade...
