Recipe. FOR 1 JAR TOMATO CONFIT
10 ripe tomatoes + 3 cloves of garlic + 3 tablespoons sugar + extra-virgin olive oil + salt + pepper.
Peel the tomatoes, remove the seeds and cut into wedges. Peel and cut the garlic cloves (which must be super fresh) into thin slices (remove the soul, which is the bud that is in the middle). Preheat the oven to 90° C/194°F. Put some baking paper on the baking sheet, place the tomatoes, pour a little extra-virgin olive oil and sprinkle with sugar. Add salt and pepper and add the chopped garlic. Bake for 2 hours and 30 minutes, stirring halfway through cooking. Get them out from the oven and put them on a rack to cool for 30 minutes. Now you can place them in an empty jar and then cover with extra-virgin olive oil. These tomatoes can be kept for 7 days in the refrigerator. If you don’t want to give them away, then enjoy them with pasta or risotto, put them in a salad or, why not, on bread.
