A delicious treat, especially when made with home grown ingredients. The longer this sits at room temperature the better it tastes, hence the "cooking time".

This is excellent! I made it for a dinner appetizer and ended up eating before, during, and after dinner :) I made about 1 pm and let it sit on my counter for the afternoon and the flavors blended wonderfully. I sliced up a baguette, toasted the slices in the oven and served. Thanks so much for posting a keeper!
