I picked the tomatoes over, there were a few where the tops had a few marks on them so I just cut those daggy bits off and composted those. I ended up with 25 halves for this recipe. These are just run of the mill tomatoes, not "vine ripened" or "Roma" and are okay to eat but by slow roasting them and giving them some love from brown sugar, balsamic vinegar and garlic, these "okay" tomatoes are transformed into absolute deliciousness.
Halve the tomatoes and put on a lined oven tray, cut side up
For every 6 tomatoes you will need, 1 tablespoon each of brown sugar and balsamic vinegar, a fine slice of garlic per half tomato and salt and pepper. Simply sprinkle over brown sugar, spoon over balsamic, place a slice of garlic on top and grind over salt and pepper to taste. Bake in a 150C oven for 1 hour
Not bad for $1.50 worth of "okay" tomatoes! Over to you, what do you do to improve not so marvellous produce?
