Recently we had a bit of a glut of tomatoes from my father in laws garden so after making Slow Cooker Chutney and still having LOADS left I decided to try out some Sundried tomatoes and it’s easy and they taste AMAZING.
You will need:
A large amount of tomatoes – I used various types
Dried basil or another herb of your choice ( oregano would be lovely)
Flat baking tray
Turn your oven onto the lowest setting.
Halve or quarter your tomatoes depending on the size. The tomatoes will reduce to about a quarter of their size. Lay out on the baking tray and sprinkle with your choice of dried herbs.
Leave in the oven for between 12-15 hours. You can tell if they are done by the texture, there should be little to no moisture left and they will feel quite leathery.
Once cool seal your tomatoes into containers or bags. I vacuumed packed mine and froze some and kept some in the fridge.
I’ve since used some on pizzas and in pasta dishes and oh they taste incredible. Little sweet bursts of sunshine in your mouth.
