Warm Tomato Relish


  • 2 teaspoon olive oil

  • 3 clove garlic (peeled and smashed)
  • 2/3 cup dry white wine
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon granulated sugar

Heat oil in a medium skillet on medium heat. Add tomatoes, and cook, swirling pan often, until skins are blistered, about 5 minutes.

Stir in garlic, wine, and balsamic vinegar, and cook until liquid reduces by half and tomatoes are soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in sugar, salt, and red-wine vinegar, and cook for 1 minute. Serve immediately, or cover, and refrigerate for up to 2 days. (Warm over low heat before using.)
