Re:Slow-Roasted Summer Tomatoes

Absolutely delicious. Had about 12 pounds of heirloom tomatoes to use and wanted to find a recipe that would preserve them (I can't eat that much in a week and DH can't eat tomatoes). This was delicious. Had a slice on pesto/asiago bread. Would be great on many breads. Will have to try with goat cheese, etc.I did have questions - in case anyone can answer. The heirlooms I used had those brown lines and indentations. I tried cutting them all out first, which left me with some halves that were more like chunks barely connected by a thread. Should I be removing all those browned skin areas?Any recipe ideas for the tomato oil? How long does it last? Can it freeze? Should it be refrigerated?Thrilled to have this recipe to use that bounty of tomatoes in late summer.

Re:No-Cook Tomato Sauce (Salsa Cruda)

Our family favorite for enjoying heirloom tomatoes. I use a mix of tomatoes. I love the recipe as is, but last night tried it with 3/4 of the suggested olive oil. Came out great - maybe even better bc. a bit less liquidy. I use it on cavatappi pasta (the curves really grab the sauce) and add lots of good parmesan cheese (reggiano). This recipe is all about the quality of the ingredients - best flavorful tomatoes, olive oil, fresh basil and quality parmesan.
