Candied Cherry Tomatoes

Hi Everyone!

During the summer, tomatoes become sweet and juicy; almost like candy! One day I decided to try and make them even sweeter by candying them.

1 pint farm fresh cherry tomatoes, rinsed clean and dried with paper towel
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 – 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Cut tomatoes in half and place into a bowl. Add remaining ingredients and toss with tomatoes to coat. Place tomatoes onto a rimmed baking pan with a silpat liner on the bottom (makes for easier clean up). Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes until roasted and caramelized.

They came out tasting delicious! They were slightly crispy, and the balsamic vinegar gave it a tang. Candying the tomatoes brought out the natural sweetness and gave it a stronger taste. Serve on crostinis, salads, etc. These tomatoes taste amazing on Farmers Market Pizza. How do you like to eat your tomatoes? Send me a tweet @TheLizzieMarie.

Thanks for reading!
