Bottled Cherry Tomatoes with Mint & Garlic by Fiona Smith, Cuisine Magazine

This very decorative pickle is well worth making so you can enjoy the full flavours of summer during winter. The tomatoes can be used on antipasti platters, tossed through pasta dishes or smeared on hot garlic bruschetta.

1kg firm red and yellow cherry tomatoes

handful large unblemished mint leaves

cloves from 1 bulb garlic, peeled

200g soft brown sugar

1 litre cider vinegar

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon black peppercorns

Lightly prick each tomato a few times with a skewer. Divide into 2 x sterilised 1 litre jar, layering with mint leaves and garlic cloves as you go.

Place sugar, cider vinegar, salt and peppercorns in a pan over a low heat. Once the sugar has dissolved, remove from the heat and cool completely. Pour vinegar solution over the tomatoes. Gently push the tomatoes down to prevent air pockets forming. Tap each jar gently with a spoon to raise any air bubbles. Seal and wipe down the jars. Store in a dark, cool cupboard. The tomatoes will be ready within 4-6 weeks and last a year.
