The grape candied tomatoes are so delicious. They’re great to add in  salads, a garnish for soups, or even to top chicken, steak. or even a nice piece of halibut. These little jewels are a staple in my frig and are so easy to make.

I have 2 pints of red grape tomatoes that have been halved. In a bowl I add in olive oil, Kosher salt, and black pepper. I toss everything together so all the tomatoes are coated.

Make sure all the tomatoes are spread out into one layer on a sheet pan. Place them into a 300 degree oven for 2-1/2 hours. After they come out of the oven and are still hot, I sprinkle some extra fine sugar over the tomatoes and let them cool completely. The sugar just enhances the sweetness, of the already sweet tomatoes Once they’ve cooled completely, I place them into a sealed tight canning jelly jar, and right into the frig. They are ready whenever I need them.
