This is another version of saving and preserving tomatoes. Dried tomatoes are really good addition to sandwiches, pasta and to a lot of dishes. This recipe is from Mario Batali’s “Molto Italiano” cookbook and I just loved it!!!
- 4 lbs ripe Plum Tomatoes
- 3 tbsps Kosher Salt
- 3 tbsps Sugar
- Preheat oven to 150F.
- Slice the tomatoes lengthwise in half and place cut side up on baking sheets. Combine the salt and sugar and sprinkle a little it over tomatoes.
- Place in the oven and cook slowly for 10 hours.
I did all of these before going to bed and by morning, I have oven-dried tomatoes.
