All-purpose Dried Tomatoes Marinated in Anchovy Oil instructions

  1. First, make anchovy oil usingand let it cool. This is really easy to make and very useful.
  2. Prepare the dried tomatoes to be marinated. Wipe the dried tomatoes to remove any dirt, and soak them in the A ingredients..
  3. How long you soak them depends of the size of the dried tomatoes, but leave them for 15-30 minutes. When they feel soft, they're ready.
  4. Strain the softened dried tomatoes, reserving the red soaking liquid which is full of flavor..
  5. You can freeze the red soaking liquid to use for tomato sauce, pasta sauce, risotto, paella, etc..
  6. Lay the softened dried tomatoes in a single layer in a strainer and let them air dry..
  7. It's faster to dry them with paper towels, but you lose some of the flavor that way, so I recommend air drying them..
  8. They should be dry enough so that the insides are soft, but the outsides are dry to the touch..
  9. It will take about 1-2 hours for them to air dry. If you're in a hurry, you can dry them with a hairdryer set on cool..
  10. Cut the dry tomatoes in pieces. If using cherry tomatoes, leave them as is..
  11. I cut mine in thirds or halves so I can use them in a variety of ways..
  12. Put the dried tomatoes from Step 10 in a bowl with the B ingredients and mix well..
  13. Peel the garlic cloves and cut them in thirds. *If they're small, leave them as is..
  14. Since I want to use this as an oil as well, I leave the garlic in bigger pieces, but you can mince it if you like..
  15. Put the Step 12 mixture in a sterilized container together with the garlic. Cover with the anchovy oil from Step 1..
  16. Tightly seal the container, and it's done. It is ready to use in about 3 days, and after 5-6 days, it has an even deeper flavor..
  17. Keep it in stock to use in an endless number of ways, such as an item for an antipasto plate, or for pasta, pizza, bread, etc..
  18. Here they're skewered with Babagarei-chan's "Burdock Root Confit"These two stocked items make an easy tapas dish..
  19. Here they are in Kumarie-chan's "Tomato Omelet Made in the Oven"They're perfect for this kind of dish..
  20. This is the anchovy & dried tomato spaghetti aglio olio e peperoncino I always make. They're good in any kind of pasta..
  21. I uploadedfor "Anchovy Spaghetti Aglio Olio e Peperoncino.".
  22. I put them in an Acqua Pazza-style dish with brussel sprouts and clams. I use these dried tomatoes a lot, so I plan to upload many more great, easy recipes..
  23. Note: For an extended shelf life, be sure to cover the dried tomatoes completely with oil so they are not exposed to air..
  24. Make sure they're always kept in the state described in Step 23. We use ours up fairly quickly, but they will easily keep for 3 months..
  25. Keep them in the fridge if you're worried about spoilage. Oil tends to turn cloudy if it's cold, but it will go back to the way it was before when it's returned to room temperature..
  26. You can also reuse any leftover oil. Add more sundried tomatoes (see Step 12) or anchovy oil. I do this all the time..
  27. I adjust the saltiness by using unsalted dried tomatoes,depending on the dish I'm making. I cut them in 4×5 cm pieces..
  28. Actually, the real reason I use unsalted ones is because I don't like salty things. Salted ones are much more common, though..
  29. If you find that the unsalted type needs more salty flavor, you can add some natural salt (not listed) in Step 12..
  30. Then, mix them with garlic and put them in a sterilized container, as in Step 15. Add some black pepper as well..
  31. I buy dried tomatoes, 500 g at a time at a wholesale market in Tokyo. I always end up buying things I don't really need as well!.
  32. If you don't like anchovies, you can use "Pure Garlic Oil"instead of anchovy oil in Step 2..
  33. If using garlic oil, add more salt if you like, as in Steps 29 and 30..
  34. "Oil-marinated Grilled Eggplant" I love these, too..
  35. The amounts of the ingredients haven't changed, but my apologies to anyone who printed out the recipe before that..
