What do I do about mold on top of my olives when I took it out after 6 months?

Hi there! I followed this recipe to a T, and I just took the jar out of the fridge for the first time today. There is a thick layer of green fuzzy mold across the entire top. Do I need to trash the entire thing or is there a way that this is salvageable? Thanks so much!

Personally, I would toss. Why take a chance? I would be curious to see if anyone suggests trying to salvage.

Gammy - if it were only a little bit or on a few olives, I might remove that little bit and see if the remainder were ok.
But a thick layer all across has me worried the whole jar is contaminated
I, too would toss.
