Olive Oil Soaked Tomato
One of my bad habits is to store food more than I can consume. Even knowing I will be away for the break, still I got plenty of products. To avoid wasting them, this is one of the things I do to the cherry tomato: preserve them in the oil. I started doing this late last night. The tomatoes were halved and dried at 215 F in the oven. After 2 hours, they were taken out to cool. Meanwhile, I crushed a big clove of garlic, put it into a jar together with the tomatoes and bay leaf. Then I poured oil until it covers all items in the jar. After coming back from the break, I am ready to enjoy it :)
