Moonblush tomatoes

When I was doing the grocery shopping on the weekend, I saw a packet of gorgeous vine ripened cherry tomatoes reduced, and immediately decided to buy them and turn them into moonblush tomatoes, a very simple recipe from Nigella Express. It is basically just involves sprinkling the tomato halves with salt (Maldon, of course!), caster sugar, dried thyme leaves and oil, and then putting them into a hot oven and immediately turning the oven off and leaving the door closed overnight for the residual heat of the oven to work its magic on the tomatoes. Made them on a night when I was cooking dinner in the oven anyway, so I wasn't heating the oven just for the tomatoes. We then had some on pizza the following night - yum!
