I found these beauties at the local supermarket in what is called the local section. Local means that they were grown right here on my island. They were not imported from a far away land.
As a child, I loved fresh juicy tomatoes. We’d have them in summer and relish them with just a little salt and black pepper. I don’t remember having them any other way. These tomatoes however, were destined for a different treatment. I decided that I would roast them.
I cut them in half and placed them in a bowl, seasoned them with salt, pepper and garlic and tossed in extra virgin olive oil. I then placed them on a baking sheet, cut side up and roasted them in a 400degree oven for 30 minutes.
These tomatoes took me right back to my childhood. They were roasted, but still juicy and scrumptiously delicious, just as I remembered. Next time, I will add a bit of chopped basil.
Now, for that glass of Truvee Rose’.
