Ingredient Notes

Cherry Tomatoes: Despite botanically being a fruit, it’s generally eaten and prepared like a vegetable. Cherry tomatoes are amazing because they are small but nutrient-packed and rich in antioxidants.

Thyme: Thyme is a classic herb that is high in vitamin C and its flavour is very earthy and a little bit sweet which is what makes this tomato confit so luscious.
