DIRECTIONS

  • Note: To peel tomatoes, score an X at each tomato's base. Plunge in boiling water for 30 to 60 seconds. Cool in ice water for 1 minute. Use a knife to remove peel, starting at the X on base.
  • Adjust oven rack to the upper-middle position and preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Arrange tomatoes in a large ovenproof skillet, cored side up.
  • Season with salt and peppers, then sprinkle with brown sugar.
  • Dot tomatoes evenly with butter.
  • Bake until tender and lightly browned, about 1 hour, basting every 15 minutes.
  • Remove skillet from the oven and transfer to the stove top. Cook over medium-low heat, basting every 5 minutes and adjusting the heat as needed to maintain a rapid simmer, until the sauce is thick and syrupy, 25 to 30 minutes.
  • Makes 8 servings.
