This is such a great and versatile recipe, and in the right season can almost all come from your garden! Its a great recipe to package up in a mason jar  and give as a host gift.


2  pt cherry or grape tomatoes
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 bunch basil, chiffonade
¼  cup balsamic vinegar
⅓  cup extra virgin olive oil plus 2 TBSP
1 TBSP honey

In a bowl, combine ⅓ cup olive oil, balsamic, basil, garlic and honey. Cut 1  pint of the tomatoes in half and place in olive oil mixture. Heat a large cast iron skillet on high heat, add 2 TBSP olive oil, put remaining whole tomatoes in and cook until slightly charring and blistered, 10-15 minutes.  Pour into rest of tomatoes and oil. Season to taste with salt.
