      Cover the tomatoes in boiling water for about 30 minutes.
    2. 2
      Squeeze dry and then slice on a cutting board.
    3. 3
      Put them into a food processor with the garlic and basil and process for a minute or two.

      Add the vinegar.
    5. 5
      Start adding water, one tablespoon at a time, while the machine is running.
    6. 6
      The mass should start to turn into a deep red paste.
    7. 7
      Add one tablespoon of oil.
    8. 8
      Taste and then add the salt and pepper as needed (some brands of dried tomatoes are very salty).
    9. 9
      You may need more water to make it spreadable.
    10. 10
      Spoon into a glass jar, pressing down with a spoon and then pour olive oil over top to keep out the air.
    11. 11
      Always make sure that the top is covered with olive oil.

      Keep refrigerated.

      I buy the tomatoes in the shuk (outdoor market), it pays to shop around because they can be quite expensive.
    15. 15
      I have also made this with lemon juice instead of vinegar but I think it spoils faster.

      So good. Made it for just a spread on bread but this would be great spread on a chicken breast thats pounded thin and rolled up, secured with toothpicks seasoned, floured and fried in butter. Sounds like a yummy recipe!
