As fall inevitably turns to winter, one of the fresh vegetables I miss most is a ripe, juicy Jersey tomato. The pink supermarket versions just don’t measure up.
But, as with other vegetables I have mentioned in previous posts, oven roasting transforms even supermarket plum tomatoes, unlocking and concentrating their natural sweetness.
Roasted tomatoes can be tossed with pasta, added to panini, used to top a pizza or added to so many other recipes.
Here’s a quick recipe from Ina Garten, but I prefer to use less salt and olive oil.
Sweet summer goodness even as winter approaches.
