Recipe by invictus
READY IN: 3hrs 10mins
YIELD: 2 1/2 cups




  • Preheat oven to 225 degrees.
  • Put the tomatoes in a baking pan large enough to hold them in a single layer. Pour the oil over the tomatoes, add the herb sprigs, garlic, and season generously with salt and pepper.
  • Roast uncovered until the tomatoes are swollenand the skins wrinkled, about three hours.
  • Remove the tomatoes from oven and allow to cool, then pour into a small bowl. For best flavor cover and refrigerate overnight, bringing the confit back to room temperature.
  • When you are ready to serve, pour the tomatoes into a strainer set over a bow, reserving both the tomatoes and the oil. Place the drained tomatoes in a small bowl, discarding the herb sprigs and garlic cloves. Add the vinegar, chopped time, and 1 tablespoon of the reserved oil. Mix gently being careful not to break the tomatoes. Season to taste with additional salt and pepper.
