Confit de tomates

Here is my recipe of “confit de tomates” (tomato confit), that you can use as a basis for “verrines” (appetizers in a glass) or bruschettas or with fish.
It is very simple to make. It can just take some time to peel all the tomatoes if you want to make large quantities (in that case, you might be tempted to use canned tomato pulp, even though it is certainly better with fresh tomatoes!)
