Sundried (oven-dried) tomatoes

Happy Monday lovely people! I want to start the week by sharing with you a fantastic way to use any abundance of tomatoes that you may have. toms For over the weekend, I had just that. IMG_2599 A pile of tomatoes in my fruit bowl that were juicy and ripe, and needed to be used before they turned. Simply, I sliced them in half and placed them (cut side up) on a rack over a baking dish. Sprinkled with a little sea salt and a drizzle of garlic infused olive oil… IMG_2601 Then into the oven at 100C for 10 hours.  Yes you read that correct. 10 hours! But what a delightful sight I was greeted with when I opened the oven later in the day…. IMG_2609IMG_2607 Perfectly dried tomatoes, packed full of flavour. IMG_2611 And while the uses for these beauties are endless, on this occasion I turned to an old favourite….. IMG_2624 Homemade pizza! Tomato paste, basil, mozzarella and of course, those oven-dried tomatoes. IMG_2625 And, true to form, they were the star of the show. And so very easy to make. Win win really! What about you? Ever dried your own tomatoes?

  1. Oooh, I've thought about trying this a few times before but we never seem to have any spare tomatoes. Maybe next season I'll plan for spares by planting a couple of extra seeds.
