A glass of chilled Champagne or sparkling wine and a plate of warm olives studded with Lemon, fennel, and garlic is a perfect way to start any evening in the wine country.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the fresh fennel and cook for 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and drain.
Warm the olive oil in a large saucepan. Add the fresh fennel, fennel seed, garlic, and red pepper flakes and cook until they begin to sizzle, about 1 minute. Add the olives and preserved lemon rind and warm gently for 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and let sit 6 hours.
Ten minutes before serving, warm the olives again. To serve, place the olives and fennel on a small platter. Drizzle with a few tablespoons of the oil and serve immediately.
