Sounds great, but what if you substitute Olive Oil for the vegetable oil? Also, do you actually use 2tbsp of sugar or is that just a typo?

Hi Paula, The receipts look great. I will sure try them. My tomatoes should be in soon. A while ago Paula did a 'quick cinnamon roll/bun' using cupcake molds and using phyllo dough. Could you send me that receipt? Thank you. Blessings, Beth

Flavor was great but next time I will cut down on the oil.

Hey Kandi Molder! Sadly, there is no substitute for the unique flavor of Angostura Bitters and as it is a secret recipe from the 1800’s it has been hard to replicate. It is usually sold in the isle at your grocery store with bar supplies/mixes. Also, try adding some of your favorite herbs from your garden between the layers for a big flavor punch!

Is there a substitute for the Angosturs bitters or can it be omitted?  I cannot find it.

I would use these marinated tomatoes with slices of fresh mozzarella and whole basil leaves.  Done.  Caprese Salad.

Angostura bitters is a mixture of alcohol and concentrated herbs. It’s been around since the 1800’s. The exact formula is a closely guarded secret, with only five people knowing the whole recipe! With it’s name people assume it is made from Angostura bark, but it is not. You can find it in the isle where they sell bar supplies in your grocery store.

I know this will be good! But, I too am not sure what the Angostina Bitters is?? Substitute?? We have had a really long, cold Spring, and not much summer yet. So, I will probably try this on Store tomatoes.

What are “Angostura bitters” and where can I find them?  In the grocery store, liquor, specialty section?

i do this roma tomatoes when they need to be used and i use splenda instead of sugar.  it takes only alittle time to marinade to have for supper when you’re at a loss to have a vegetable with your meal. sometimes there’s not enough when my husband is in the mood for them.

What is angosura bitters i havent ever heard of that

By Pepper LYNN on July 14, 2010

This is very similar to mine, but often I just use Good Seasons zesty italian that I make with red wine vinegar. Depending on the tomatoes I sometimes add a tsp. of sweetener.  I can’t wait for my tomatoes to ripen. You all made me so hungry.  Love you and all of your recipes.

Yes I add onions, bell peppers sometime cucumbers. The longer it sets the better. All my friends love it also. Its wonderful to snack on while grilling, then along with the meal also!!!
