Oven Dried Tomatoes

Oven Dried Tomatoes

I found this to be the perfect way to use up some of the many little cherry tomatoes I had from my plants at the end of summer. They are so easy to dry in the oven and store in olive oil in jars for using on pizza’s, in sauces and so on.

Preheat the oven to 100 degrees celsius.

Wash, dry and cut the tomatoes in half, place them cut side up on a cooling rack on top of a baking tray lined with baking paper. Drizzle the tomatoes with some olive oil, a sprinkle of pink sea salt, and some herbs of your choice (I used fresh thyme and basil and dry oregano).

Dry the tomatoes in the oven for several hours, this can depend on the size of your tomatoes and can take up to four hours.

Once the tomatoes are cool keep in a sealed jar covered in olive oil. They last a week or two.
