Tomatoes and bacon: Summer’s Perfect Couple.

My local farmers market has some great tomatoes.  I feel an experiment coming on, kids…

Tomato Confit in Bacon Fat - Los Angeles Times

Roasted tomato confited with bacon fat (Ricardo DeAratanha / Los Angeles Times)

Serve this lovely confit over pasta, or chopped and on top of crostini. Heck, I think I might just eat it straight out of a jar!

Main ingredients:

  • 3 pounds tomatoes
  • 6 large cloves garlic
  • 12 sprigs thyme
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 pound sliced bacon
  • Salt

Full recipe in the Los Angeles Times’ Food Section here.
