Luscious Roast Tomatoes

Luscious Roast Tomatoes



12 British midi plum tomatoes
2 x 15mlsp (2tbsp) Olive oil
1 x 5mlsp (1tsp) Soft brown sugar
Rock salt
Fresh black pepper


Preheat the oven to 190°C, 375°F, Gas Mark 5.

Cut the tomatoes into quarters and place in a mixing bowl with the olive oil, sugar and a good grinding of rock salt and black pepper. Turn the tomatoes with a spoon to ensure that they are thoroughly coated with the oil and sugar.

Place the tomatoes on a baking sheet and roast in the oven for 1½ to 2 hours, turning from time to time.

They are ready when reduced in size, deep red and just beginning to char. For a 'sun-blushed' effect, remove the tomatoes from the oven a little earlier.

Allow to cool completely before storing in an airtight container and refrigerate for up to two weeks.

Tip: Try these rich, home roast tomatoes instead of sun-dried. They are delicious mixed into salads, pasta, casseroles or chopped into sauces or dressings.
