Tomato Surprenant


Tomato SurprenantThis little surprise (surprenant) of a candied tomato is an excellent appetizer for dinner parties, with this sophisticated touch of flavour from the Feur De Sel and they are oh so simple to make!






Makes: 6-8 Tomatoes


  • 6-8 Vine Ripened Tomatoes (or 1 pt Grape or 12 plum Tomatoes)
  • 2 oz Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 oz Wildflower Honey
  • 1 tsp Fleur De Sel (or Sea Salt)


  1. In a small pot combine over medium-low heat the honey & vinegar, reducing till it coats the back of a spoon.
  2. Remove from heat and dip the tomatoes into the balsamic reduction, in batches.
  3. Continue to re-dip the batches until all the reduction is used up.
  4. Finish with a couple of specks of ‘Fleur De Sel’ per tomato.

This is an excellent appetizer that has the depth of balsamic, sweetness of the honey, and savoury of the tomato.
