This recipe looked fantastic, but as we are just out of abundant tomato season, I'd like to save it for next summer. The recipe was posted in the September 2008 issue of Oprah Magazine, in a great article about the local slow-foods movement (great organic whole food, fresh from local farm to kitchen). The recipe was provided to the magazine from Dan Barber of Blue Hill at Stone Barns. They indicate that the recipe is a delicious topping for sandwiches or served with crusty artisanal bread and a great cheese. Confit is a cooking term for a variety of foods, usually meats, that are preserved through salting or being slow cooked in their own fat. Confit can also be also a condiment of fruit or vegetables cooked to the consistency of jam.
