Oven Dried Tomatoes

If you are like me you have way more tomatoes than you can eat this year.  Preserve your cherry tomatoes by drying them in a low oven.  Pack them in olive oil and store them in the fridge practically indefinitely.  Use them in soups, sauces, on salads, in scrambled eggs, over pasta, with grilled veggies…

  • Cherry tomatoes
  • Kosher salt
  • Olive oil

Preheat the oven to 250 degrees.  Slice all the tomatoes through the center and lay them out on a rimmed baking sheet- it’s okay if they are touching.  Drizzle a little olive oil  over them and sprinkle them generously with salt.

Bake for an hour.  Reduce the heat to 200 degrees and bake for another 1 1/2 to 2 hours.  When the tomatoes are wrinkled and feel dry to the touch they are done.  Allow them to cool a bit and then pack them loosely into glass jars.  Pour olive oil in to cover them.  Seal the jars and store in the fridge.
