Oven Roasted Tomatoes

I participate in a Community Supported Agriculture program.  We purchased a large share of vegetables which equals 26 weeks of Certified Organic and Non-GMO produce. The taste, freshness, and variety of the vegetables has been amazing!

We had a lot of yellow plum tomatoes last week so I decided to roast some of them.  So easy to do and can be added to salads and sandwiches or over pasta.  Delicious!

Oven Roasted Tomatoes
slightly adapted from Ina Garten, Barefoot Contessa Back to Basics, p.90

12-15 plum tomatoes (red, yellow, or mix of both) halved
¼ cup olive oil
1 ½ Tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 clove garlic, minced fine
2 teaspoons light brown sugar
kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.  Place tomato halves cut sides up in single layer on sheet pan.  Drizzle with vinegar and oil.  Sprinkle garlic, sugar, salt & pepper evenly over the tomatoes.  Roast for 2 to 2 1/2 hours until tomatoes begin to caramelize and edges are browned.
