Cherry tomatoes of every warm hue imaginable are creating some excellent clutter in my garden. Can't pick or eat them fast enough, so did this with a bunch of them, and things went Exponential.
  1. Preheated oven to 250 degrees.
  2. Sliced a bunch of cherry tomatoes in half.
  3. Slicked a foil-lined baking tray w olive oil.
    Can be parchment paper instead of foil.
  4. Tossed tomatoes on tray: sprinkled them lightly w herbes de Provence.
    That's a seasoning mix made from lavender, fennel seeds, marjoram, rosemary, basil.
  5. In the oven for 45 minutes -> 1 hour.
    Possibly even longer - or until they look and seem right to you. (Shake the tray a few times to interrupt sticking.) The tomatoes will dry out slowly, becoming slightly chewy. The sugars caramelize. It's just overall brilliant.
  6. That's all.
    We had them w goat cheese-and-fresh-chive-dotted scrambled eggs and thick slices of olive oil-grilled sourdough. THE best brunch ever!
  7. (Ate them too fast to get a photo...)
