I saw Ina make these on her cooking show. The episode was entitled "Photo Finish". These tomatoes are delicious!

I had some trouble with this recipe. While the recipe is very simple and the flavor is very good (5 stars), my tomatoes never began to carmelize as described in the directions, instead they mostly dissolved. Again, the flavor is wonderful and I would like to try again with greater success. Any suggestions would be welcome.

  3. Drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Sprinkle the garlic, sugar, salt, and pepper over the tomatoes.
  4. Roast for 25 to 30 minutes, until the tomatoes are concentrated and beginning to caramelize.
