How to make it

  • Skin the tomatoes. (you will need to blanch them for this!)
  • Carefully cut off the tops. Place them in a buttered baking dish suitable to serve them in. Sprinkle with salt, pepper, and brown sugar. Dab each of the with butter. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F, and bake for 1/2 hour. The remove to the top of the stove, and over a low flame, reduce the juice until it is a thick syrup. Then once again bake them in a hot oven (400 degeres F) for 1/2 hour. Serve hot."
  • Original Recipe:
  • You cut off the tops of the tomatoes--leave the stem--and make a cavity in the top, and fill each hole with a good-sized piece of butter--not a stingy piece-and put a tablespoonful of sugar on each tomato. Sprinkle with salt, and put in the oven to cook until the sugar is brown and the tomato done but not flat. Stick a sprig of parsley in the top of each tomato and serve on rounds of toast with sauce of the tomato. That makes a very pretty dish.
