Fire Roasted Tomatoes
A deep-flavored tomato that you will add to everything!
Start with Roma tomatoes. They are meaty enough to withstand the heat. Preheat your oven to 450 degrees.
Slice your tomatoes from end to end and place center down on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper that has been brushed with olive oil. Brush the skins with olive oil. Leave enough space between each tomato to allow the heat to flow around the fruit freely.
Bake for 25-30 minutes depending on your oven. When done, the skins should all be blackened. There is a lot – A LOT – of room for error at this point, do not fear, errors will not ruin this recipe.
When the skins are nice and black, remove from the oven and set aside to cool.
Once cool, put the tomatoes in a glass container, add a topping of olive oil and store in the refrigerator for deliciousness in your recipes. I told you it was easy! And once you are used to having these delicious sweet beauties on hand, you will find an endless number of uses for them. Within a few months, you will wonder how you ever got along without them. Honestly, you will.
