  • Author: Ingrid DeHart
  • Total Time: 25 minutes
  • Yield: 4 servings 1x


This simple Roasted Jammy Cherry Tomatoes is one of the most delicious tomato dishes you’ll ever eat. As the tomatoes cook they become juicy and jammy.


  • 5 cups cherry tomatoes, assorted colors, halved (2 containers)
  • 4 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Celtic sea salt
  • Fresh black pepper
  • 10 fresh basil leaves, chopped or chiffonade
  • Coarse salt like Maldon


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. On a sheet pan, toss together tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, salt and pepper and spread them out into one layer.
  3. Roast for 20 to 25 minutes, until the tomatoes have released their juice and almost completely collapsed. They will be soft, juicy and fragrant.
  4. Transfer the tomatoes to a serving dish (use a rubber spatula to get every last bit of the juice).
  5. Sprinkle with basil leaves and sea salt right before serving.
  6. Serve hot or at room temperature.
