Sundried tomatoes - best herbs?

Hi, I got a big bag of sundried tomatoes from the market last week to soak in oil and herbs but the guy who served me last year wasn't there to ask this time and I can't remember what herbs I used last time.
I put the tomatoes in a 'pickling' jar full of olive oil and added garlic and possibly basil or rosemary - what would you use or suggest as a good combination please?
Last time they were lovely but I didn't totally submerged them and the top ones went mouldy and furry so I had to bin them & go back to Waitrose deli counter!
thanks Carol

Re: Sundried tomatoes - best herbs?

Carol basil & Rosemary is fine BUT as you so rightly say Cover completely else pay the price!!!! You can add Mint Oregano its to your taste... The intensity of flavours develope over time... So always have one jar maturing while your using the other one!! Ive not seen the sundried Toms on market where exactly are they???

Re: Sundried tomatoes - best herbs?

Cheers Duke, you just jogged my memory, it was oregano I couldn't remember. Last year it was at Akbuk Friday market & we managed to get the ingredients with the aid of a phrase book! He was at Didim Wednesday fruit & veg market last week. I think it was the same guy - lots of spice sacks, possibly soaps and a wooden box at the front with the honey and comb in. Not sure if it's his regular pitch but he was to the side of the main part, on a raised concrete bit down an alley as I walked back to the boulevard. If your luck's in his son will ask you if you have a boyfriend!! I'm hungry at the thought of these tomatoes now. Ta Carol
