Amogio Sauce (Shelby Township, MI)

Amogio (a – mo-jio) sauce should be on the bucket list of every garlic lover. An authentic Sicilian amogio is made in the summer with tomatoes ripened on the vine and as many cloves of garlic as you like. The old way was to scald the tomatoes in boiling water and peel the skins before dicing and mashing to a pulp by hand with a heavy cup. That is still the standard, however, we manage to get about the same texture using a food processor. Amogio sauce is traditionally served chilled over a hot off the grill beef steak. It’s equally good on just about any grilled meat or fish, as a bruschetta topping, or as a dipping sauce for Italian bread.

Prepare several hours ahead. Makes about 2 cups.

Ingredients
2 cups of petite diced vine ripe tomatoes; no need to peel
2 tablespoons of olive oil
3 or more cloves or garlic, crushed
2 tablespoons or more of minced fresh basil
a squeeze or two of fresh lemon juice
table salt
finely ground pepper

Instructions
1. Place all ingredients in a food processor. It is essential that the tomatoes are finely diced and the garlic is crushed. Start with 2 pinches of salt and one pinch of pepper.
2. Pulse several times until the tomato is just broken down.
3. Taste and correct seasoning.
4. Place in a covered glass container and chill for several hours or overnight.
