Recipe

Ingredients

  • Salt
  • Plum tomatoes
  • Garlic cloves
  • Rosemary sprigs
  • Olive oil

Directions

Salt the tomatoes and set on a wire rack raised 12-to 18-inches off all the ground, directly in hot sunlight.

Sun-dry for 8 to 10 days.

Remove the tomatoes from the rack and pack in sterilized canning jars with 1 clove of garlic and 1 sprig of rosemary per jar.

Fill each jar with olive oil.

Notes

The tomatoes must be dried in a very dry climate. It is not necessary to bring them indoors at night.
