Good time for tomatoes

 

I have a vegie patch and at the moment, as you do, I have an abundance of zucchini and tomatoes. If your board just eating raw tomatoes why not switch em up a bit.

 

 

Oven dried tomatoes

Cut the tomatoes in half lengthways and place cut –side up on a cooling rack over an oven tray.  Sprinkle the tomatoes lightly with salt and any herbs you would like to use.  Dry in the oven on the lowest possible setting for 3 – 6 hours for semi sundried and 6 – 8 hours for dried or until the tomatoes fee dry when you touch them.

Once cool pack them into hot sterilised jars and pour enough olive oil over the tomatoes to completely cover them.  Semi dried will last in your fridge for a couple of weeks although if you choose to dry them a little further they will keep for about a month.

 

Love to hear from you!
