Ingredients

  • 1 pint green cherry tomatoes, chopped roughly
  • 2 pinches of salt, plus more to taste
  • 1 Cup whole garlic cloves
  • 1/2 Cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 -4 basil leaves
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon

Directions

Season the tomatoes with the salt and place in a colander or cheesecloth to drip for about an hour. Roast the whole garlic cloves in the olive oil in a pan over low heat until brown and soft, about 3-4 hours. Roughly mash the cloves into a paste. Mix in with the cherry tomatoes. Fold in the basil. Season with additional salt and lemon juice, to taste.

Tomato Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Tomato Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
