Incredibly sweet and juicy, these roasted beauties are wonderful atop crostini.
1 pound cherry tomatoes, or diced heirloom tomatoes, or a mixture of both
1 tablespoon olive oil
Sea salt and fresh ground pepper
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.
