Would you believe me if I told you this was a chocolate tomato? That is what a farmer told me this week at the farmer’s market. Like a chocolate sucker, I bought it.
I did double check Google, just to make sure I was not really a chocolate sucker.
There is such a thing as a chocolate tomato. There is also such a thing as a chocolate tomato bar, tomato chocolate cake and chocolate spice tomato soup cupcakes. I am now curious to know what the combination chocolate and tomato tastes like, when I finally try it, I will let you know.
Anyhow, I wanted to share with you my favorite easy way to have tomato’s.
1 1/2 pounds tomato’s, cut into wedges
3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2 teaspoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons olive oil
Season tomato wedges with salt and pepper. Cook balsamic vinegar and brown sugar in a small skillet over medium heat until reduced by half. Remove from heat and whisk in olive oil. Drizzle over tomatoes and add snipped chives and basil. Yum!
