Oven Dried Tomatoes

13 Jun

Sun dried tomatoes are sweet as candy. Last weekend at a restaurant I had a salad that had oven dried tomatoes. They were so good I had to try to make some.

  • tomatoes cut in halves
  • kosher salt
  • olive oil

Sprinkle very lightly the cut sides of tomato halves with kosher salt. Place tomato halves, cut sides down, on paper towels. Let stand 1 hour.Preheat oven to 300°. Arrange tomato halves, cut sides up, in a single layer on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil. Bake at 300° for 2 hours or until edges of tomatoes curl, (the tomatoes will feel dry to the touch). Grape tomatoes cook faster. Tomatoes will keep for up to a week in an airtight container in the fridge.
