Oven Dried Tomatoes
Just recently, I started using dried fruits and vegetables in my recipes. I like tomatoes and peppers that are roasted or dried. They add that extra bit of umph to a dish. This is a simple recipe and very easy to make. It will be something that you will want to keep on hand. I know that I do.
Plum tomatoes, such as Roma
herbs such as thyme, parsley, oregano, or basil
garlic minced, optional
Quarter the tomatoes. I left the seeds. Some recipes say to discard them but that should be a matter of preference.
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees F (I put mine at 250 F, it will vary according to your oven). Cover the bottom of a large shallow pan (I used a pizza pan) with olive oil. Next add the tomatoes, salt, herbs and drizzle with olive oil. Place the tomatoes in the oven and bake for 4-6 hours.
Put the tomatoes in a small jar or plastic bag. I covered mine in olive oil. They will keep for about 6 months. These can also be put in the freezer. To rehydrate add olive oil, water, or wine. Enjoy!
