Tips

If you wish to store the tomatoes, cook until completely dry, approx. 9 hours.

Other tomatoes may be used, but the Roma or egg tomatoes have the strongest flavour. Normal tomatoes will take longer to bake, and cherry or tear drop tomatoes will take a shorter time to bake.

Dried tomatoes should be kept in the refrigerator.

Tomatoes can be marinated in olive oil for a few hours before serving if desired.
