Olive bread

The King Arthur Flour Company is a great business. Visiting their store, almost everything is irresistibly tempting and unbelievably delicious. Before Christmas I purchased some cheater ingredients from them, and one of them was an artisan olive bread additive. 
Olives are delicious. No, not the black ones that come in a can and taste like shoe. Those are actually unripe olives artificially died the color of satan's hoof. I'm talking about real olives here. And if you don't happen to live in the Mediterranean, the least you can do is acquire Kalamata olives for a tasty olive bread. However, if you are lazy, like may just trust the experts and tweak an old bread recipe to achieve the desired sublime flavors.

3 cups flour
0.5 cup KAF olive bread mix
0.5 tsp yeast
1 tsp salt
1.5 cup warm water.

Mix the dry ingredients in a bowl. Pour in the water and mix well until no dry spots remain.

Cover bowl with foil and allow to rise at room temperature for 12-18 hours. Cut into 6-8 rolls and bake in a preheated 450F oven until golden brown. Cool on a cookie rack.
