Slow-Roasted Cherry & Pear Tomatoes

Incredibly sweet and juicy, these roasted beauties are wonderful atop crostini.

Ingredients:
1 pound mixed cherry and yellow pear tomatoes
1 tablespoon olive oil
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 300°. Place a wire rack inside a rimmed baking sheet. Brush the tomatoes with oil, then season with salt and pepper. Transfer the tomatoes to the prepared rack

2. Roast the tomatoes until skins are shriveled but tomatoes are still plump, about 1 1/2 hours. Let tomatoes and their juices cool to room temperature.

Variations: For added punch, toss tomatoes with your favorite fresh herb, such as thyme or oregano, or minced garlic, before roasting.
