sun (oven) dried tomatoes ...


Trying to come up with new uses for my tomatoes has been fun - and many thanks to those of you who sent recipe ideas my way. I thought I would attempt oven-drying some of the cherry tomatoes to see if I could get anything resembling a sun-dried.

First I halved the tomatoes and scooped out the seeds/juice with a melon baller. Some were a bit green at the edges, but that didn't seem to be a problem.

I tossed them in olive oil and placed them cut-side up on some parchment paper. I sprinkled sea salt and black pepper on them.

I baked them at 250 degrees for about an hour and a half.

Taaaaadaaaaaaa....


They taste REALLY good.

And I promise this is my last post about tomatoes for the season. Truly.
