I have several recipes that call for sun-dried tomatoes, and thought I would try my hand at making some, since they're not that easy to come by in my corner of the world, well not without driving a distance that is.
So I sliced up the tomatoes, I only had four, and spread them out on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Drizzled them with a little olive oil, and then salted them, very, very, very lightly with sea salt.
Put them in the oven for an hour or so at 350 degrees and this is what came out. Some of the slices were a little well done, but the majority, were just about right. They actually did go in for longer, and I should have checked them a little sooner, cause some of them were a little browner but I ate the evidence so just ignore the darker ones on the picture.
And of course after taste testing a few, I decided I wanted something a little more substantial, so I made an over the top grilled cheese sandwich and added a few slices of my just dried tomatoes.
And it was good.
So the next time you have some tomatoes languishing, feeling unloved, try this out. I know it's not going to be the last time I do this one.
