Killer Marinated Tomatoes Recipe

My friend shared these marinated tomatoes recipe a few weeks back and knew I had to make them. I love tomatoes.

The marinade is so easy to prepare.  A simple blend of herbs, spice and vinegar packs a real punch.
These marinated tomatoes will keep in the fridge for a few weeks in a sealed jar or container. Just stir them every few days to distribute the marinade over the tomatoes.



4lb tomatoes
10 garlic cloves
2 red bell pepper- cut in half lengthwise and seeded
1 jalapeno pepper- cut in half lengthwise and seeded
4 cups water
1/2 cup + 1 Tbsp. sugar
1.3 cup salt
1.3 cup white vinegar
1 bay leaf
10 black peppercorns
1 bunch fresh herbs (cilantro, dill or Italian parley)

In medium saucepan combine water, sugar, salt, bay leaf and black peppercorns; boil for 2 minutes. Turn the heat off, mix in the vinegar and let it cool completely.
In food processor or blender, add red bell pepper, fresh herbs (parsley, dill or cilantro; I added 1/2 bunch of cilantro and 1/2 bunch of dill) and garlic. Buzz several times until well blended. 
Pour the red bell pepper mixture in to a jar (or plastic container with a tight fitting lid) big enough to hold all the tomatoes; Cut each tomato in quarters and layer them in a jar on top of the red bell pepper mixture; Pour cooled water and vinegar mixture over tomatoes, cover, and let marinated for 24 hours at room temperature. Refrigerate for overnight and they are ready to serve.

    Can you please check the amount of salt used in this recipe? Is 1.3 cup correct? I made this recipe and it was too salty.
