Top Secret Cherry Tomato Prep

Top Secret Cherry Tomato Prep
Recipe type: sauces
  • Grape or cherry tomatoes
  • Olive oil
  • Sugar
  1. Take two equal five-inch lids from ricotta or sour cream.
  2. Place the tomatoes shoulder to shoulder on the bottom lid.
  3. Place the other lid on top.
  4. Cut horizontally through the small gap with a sharp non-serrated knife. (although a serrated one will work.)
  5. To intensify a cherry tomato, I use an old secret that I’ve seen the Italians sneak by with while competing at the International Pizza Expo.
  6. Take a bunch of cherry or grape tomatoes in a sauté pan and sauté on medium heat with olive oil and sugar.
  7. The skins caramelize and the juices intensify into a wondrous sweet tomato bomb!
