 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4                    firm fleshed but ripe tomatoes
    1      Clove         garlic and oil -- (1 to 2)
    1      Tbsp.         chopped fresh basil
                         salt and freshly ground black pepper to
                         taste
    1      Tsp.          chopped fresh rosemary
                         or 1 tsp. dried rosemary
 
 The tomatoes for this recipe should not be peeled. Pare
 into and around the stem end and discard the core. Slice each
 tomato in half. Cut the garlic lengthwise into very thin
 slivers. Make several small gashes into the cut portions of
 the tomatoes and stash each gash with a sliver of garlic. Oil
 a baking dish and arrange the tomatoes on it. Sprinkle the
 tomatoes with salt and pepper. Liberally sprinkle the tomatoes
 with oil, then sprinkle with rosemary. Place them under a
 medium flame and let them cook gently until hot and bubbling
 and edges of the tomatoes start to burn. Remove from baking
 dish and let it stand until the tomatoes are cold. Sprinkle
 the tomatoes with basil and serve cold.
