Dried Tomatoes in Olive Oil
These tomatoes taste better than the expensive 
"sun dried" ones at the supermarket .
Dip dried tomato slices in vinegar. Shake off excess. Pack in a jar and cover with olive
oil. Store at a cool temperature 1 month before use. Refrigerate for up to 6 months. 
The oil solidifies at refrigerator temperatures, but quickly liquifies at room temperature. 
Makes 1 pint. 
CAUTION: Do not add fresh garlic or fresh herbs to oil packed tomatoes. The US
Department of Agriculture cautions against this because garlic and herbs are low-acid foods
which create a low-acid, anaerobic environment when placed in oil. This could result in the
perfect breeding ground for botulism.
