Oven-Dried Tomatoes

Cooking tomatoes for a long time at a low temperature dehydrates them and concentrates their flavor. These are plumper and softer than commercial sun-dried tomatoes, with a delicate, rich flavor.

This recipe goes with Flatbread with Oven-Dried Tomatoes, Rosemary, and Fontina

Cooking Light JANUARY 2002

  • Yield: 1 cup (serving size: 1/4 cup)

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds plum tomatoes, cored and cut in half lengthwise (about 10)
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

Preparation

Sprinkle cut sides of tomato halves with kosher salt. Place tomato halves, cut sides down, on paper towels. Let stand 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 300°.

Arrange tomato halves, cut sides up, in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake at 300° for 3 1/2 to 4 hours or until edges of tomatoes curl (the tomatoes will feel dry to the touch).

Note: These will keep for a week, covered, in the refrigerator, or for up to a month in the freezer.
