It’s probably wise to make these Blistered Cherry Tomatoes every day for the entire month of August.

Blistered Cherry Tomatoes Recipe

The current scene in my kitchen is pretty awesome if you ask me. My countertops look like the most colorful jewelry box made of tons of different produce that I hauled home from the market this past weekend. They are lined with gorgeous cherry tomatoes, bright and colorful pluots, a variety of different melons and all sorts of other colorful gems. Summer is without a doubt my favorite time for produce because it’s all so vibrant and cheerful, cherry tomatoes in particular! Half the time I pop these tomatoes in my mouth like candy, and the other half of the time I transform them into these Blistered Cherry Tomatoes and can then live on top of any main course or act as a side dish. They’d also be excellent on top of some homemade naan as a quick and easy lunch.

    I cannot wait for tomatoes to come in (if ever) in my garden so I can make these! Love the suggestion of eating it with naan, I love making that too! Though I could eat tomatoes like chips all day long

    I take mushrooms, scallions, cherry or grape tomatoes , Saute in butter and organic olive oil till a little soft. Add 3 garlic cloves , hand crushed in cast iron skillet.Saute garlic but don’t burn them as they’ll make everything bitter add marasala wine.and cook all in a cast iron skillet till marsala wine reduces.set aside till main course is ready.
    I don’t measure everything is done by eye. Just like Mom & Gram did.

      How do you get the skillet hot enough to blister the tomatoes, but not burn the garlic? I followed the recipe, but I guess my skillet wasn’t hot enough, b/c the tomatoes needed more time. The garlic burned.
