Boil kettle.  Place tomatoes in a bowl and tip boiling water over them.  Let stand for 2 minutes, drain and refresh with cold water.

Peel off the skins and cut out the cores with a small knife.  Cut the tomatoes in half.

In a frypan or saucepan melt half the butter.

Add the finely sliced garlic and stew in the butter for 30 seconds, then add tomatoes and stir/shake over a brisk heat until they are warmed and softened.

Season with salt and pepper and serve on toast slices buttered with the other half of the butter mentioned.
