Ingredients

  • 513 oz. 150 g tomatoes, sun-dried
  • ¾ cup 175 ml olive oil
  • 2 2 sliced garlic clovesliced garlic cloves
  • 1 tbsp 1 tbsp white vinegar 5%
  • fresh thyme

Instructions

  1. Most cooks start with store-bought, good quality sun-dried tomatoes. Of course, if you have a dehydrator, or patience and a low-temperature oven, you may begin with fresh tomatoes.
  2. Layer tomatoes, along with a few sprigs of fresh thyme and thinly sliced garlic, in a clean glass jar.
  3. Add a splash of vinegar and add olive oil.
  4. Leave at room temperature to soften for a couple of hours. These marinated tomatoes can be stored in the fridge for up to two weeks.

Tip!

Make a few extra jars to give away to friends and family; marinated tomatoes make a thoughtful, personalized hostess gift.

When the tomatoes are eaten, the oil can be used for cooking or dressing a salad. For a longer shelf life, swap the fresh garlic for dehydrated garlic.
