  • In a large sauce pan, gently heat the olive oil over medium heat, add the garlic and constantly stir while adding all four bell pepper slices. Cover and cook for ten minutes, while stirring every so often; to keep from sticking.
  • When peppers seem semi soft add the red wine vinegar, and cook, uncovered, until the vinegar is reduced a bit in the evaporation, then add the raisons, salt and pepper and cook everything for about 15 to 20 minutes or until all the raisons are nice and plump and the bell peppers are soft.
  • Garnish with fresh basil if you wish.
  • Serve warm as a starter or with fish or grilled chicken, it is also great with some salty cheese or creamy goat cheese as an authentic dessert! MMMMMMM.
