Confit can be anything. It aids whatever-the-thing-being-confited-is to retain its juiciness as it mellows in a soft, slow poach in oil. This tomato version is infinitely versatile!Add the confit to soups or sauces, spoon it atop eggs, legumes, over fish or chicken, onto toast, and more - and save the confit oil! It is a magical flavor booster. Use it to make vinaigrettes, add it to cook rice or beans, to sear fish - the list goes on. This is a smart recipe to save a bounty, and you two great things in one.
