Pomodori Sott'Olio (Marinated Sun-Dried Tomato Topping) Recipe

Step 1

Soak the tomatoes in 3/4 c warm water & 3/4 c warm vinegar for 2 to 3 hours. Drain & set on a kitchen towel.

Step 2

Pat dry. Stir together the basil, red pepper flakes, garlic & salt. In a 12 ounce jar, alternate layers of the tomatoes with the basil mixture.

Step 3

Pour in the olive oil, making sure that it covers the top layer. Eliminate any air bubbles. Screw on the lid & seal well. Marinate for 1 day before using.

NOTE: Do not use overly salty tomatoes. Ensure that the tomatoes are dried by the sun & not by an oven & that they are not already preserved in oil. Serve with bread.
