Tomato 'Confit'
If you’re like me you are swimming in tomatoes right about now. I’ve got yellow tomatoes ripening on the window sill and Greek salad, gazpacho, and ratatouille in the fridge, all made with this week’s haul of tomatoes. As you know there is only so much we can do with fresh tomatoes. one of the best option is we have to reduce the size of the haul is to reduce the size of the haul! Roast em slowly, they dehydrate and are easier to store but at the same time you’ve created an amazing tomato condiment!
I love these dried tomatoes chopped up as a quick sauce or salsa, they are great added to salads and soups with their dried fruit flavors and bright acids that have been concentrated in the fruit. For a real treat chop these up or puree them and use them on grilled pizzas with fresh mozzarella and basil. Outrageous! These concentrated packet of tomato flavor work well with the usual tomato friendly wines. Think Chianti and Barbera, but since they are roasted some bigger wines, from Puglia for example, really work well. Still, it’s hot out so i want something fresh and refreshing so barbera it is for me!
