Absinthe cherry tomatoes

This was one half of the starter of yesterday’s absinthe-based Christmas lunch.

Ingredients are for five small servings.

Wash 800 grams of cherry tomatoes of different colors.

Combine one teaspoon (raw cane) sugar with two tablespoons butter in a saucepan until they start to froth.

Add two tablespoons olive oil.

Add the tomatoes. Cook over medium heat until the tomatoes become soft and their skin starts to split.

I took this recipe from the book “Absinthe” by Margaretha Junker and Clara Tuma.
