Use over the next two weeks for pasta, in a homemade sauce, or anytime you want to flavor enhance a dish to make it more special.


  •   2 pints cherry tomatoes, stemmed
  •   2 cups olive oil (or more)
  •   4 garlic cloves, smashed
  •   1/2 cup basil leaves
  •   1 tsp kosher salt
  •   3 fresh thyme sprigs


  1. Immerse the tomatoes in oil with the spices, and cook them at 350°F for 30 minutes.
  2. After the tomatoes cool, reserve the oil and the tomatoes in your refrigerator in an airtight glass jar.


Here I have cooked the tomatoes at 350°, which is below the smoke point of Olive Oil.
