This is a great way to use a lot of tomatoes at once, and its a great base to use in other recipes. Confit translates to "in fat" - in this recipe the fat is olive oil though you could use other cooking oils as well.
- early girl tomatoes
- head of garlic
- olive oil
Preheat oven to 325. Wash the tomatoes, and chop the top off the garlic so all the gloves are exposed. Arrange them in a baking dish, and douse with olive oil.
Roast for about an hour, until they smell like tomato heaven.
From here you can do many things, blend up to make a rich tomato sauce or a base for a tomato soup, etc, or you can put them in a jar (juices too) and they will store in the fridge for up to 2 weeks or freeze and thank yourself in the winter.
