Honey Balsamic Tomato Crostini / MOMS KITCHEN HANDBOOK I was thinking of calling this Tomato Candy, but then I worried that visions of chocolate-dipped cherry tomatoes might trip across your imagination and you’d wonder if I’d lost my marbles.

More apt would be to call it Candied Tomatoes because that’s what happens when you lap summer’s best tomatoes in a brew of honey and balsamic and then slow roast them until caramelization sets in. They’re a wonder so good, they often get swiped off the baking sheet before they can make it onto the crostini .

Honey Balsamic Cherry TomatoesThey’re perfect crown jewels to top ricotta or burrata for a simple appetizer. They’re equally delicious stirred into pasta then showered with Parmesan cheese or used as a filling for sandwiches of every stripe. Honey Balsamic Tomato Grilled Cheese anyone? Uh, yes please!

So, add these to your summer bucket list. Go get yourself a couple of baskets of cherry tomatoes, do them up with the honey and all that other good business and spoon them, still warm over your crostini.  Call the kids in from outside, invite a friend over, gather in the kitchen, open a bottle of bubbly.

Candy is rarely this good for you. It’s worth celebrating.

    Oh Katie these sound so good. I’m dying for my tomatoes to ripen so I can try it out.

      I imagine you guys are a little slower with the tomatoes…but worth the wait.
