Homemade Sun-Dried Tomatoes

    1 day 20 min

    Tomatoes are dried out in the oven on low heat. Not a labour intensive process, but certainly a lengthy one. Once dried, store them in airtight jars with olive oil to keep them plump and moist.

    1. Preheat oven to 95 degrees C.
    2. Wash and halve tomatoes. Gently squeeze out the seeds. Place the tomatoes on a non-stick baking tray, and sprinkle with salt to taste.
    3. Bake until tomatoes take on a leathery texture. This could literally take all day; smaller pieces will require less oven time.

    I baked them for about 7 hours. They turned out well but I'm not sure how to store them.  -  24 Jul 2008


    I used cherry tomatoes and they turned out great. I never knew you could make these at home, and it was so easy! Thanks for the recipe!  -  24 Jul 2008


    I make these tomatoes every week they are so easy you you can use any type of tomato. I lay foil sheet on a grilling tray, cut my tomatoes in half and lay them all over the tray cut side up. The drizzle a small amount of olive oil over them followed by oregano basil salt and pepper all sprinkled over the top. (use as much or as little to suit your taste) on a very low heat around 100 cook for some hours until done to your liking. The aroma around the house will be awesome. Enjoy!  -  11 May 2015
