Oven-Dried Tomatoes

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!!!
Oven-Dried Tomatoes
  • 4 lbs ripe Plum Tomatoes
  • 3 tbsps Kosher Salt
  • 3 tbsps Sugar
Cooking Directions
  1. Preheat oven to 150F.
  2. 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.
  3. Place in the oven and cook slowly for 10 hours.

sliced tomatoes....sprinkle with salt and sugar

10 hours later... the smaller ones were perfect but i have to put back the bigger ones

transferred to a cooling rack and put back for a little longer in the oven to make it a little drier
I did all of these before going to bed and by morning, I have oven-dried tomatoes. :)
