Preparing Sun Dried Tomatoes

See Recipe Below

Photo Credit


One bag of Roma or paste tomato


Slice them in half and lay them out on baking sheets skin side down.  They shrink a lot so they can be crowded on the baking sheets to start.

After slicing them, they simply go into a 200°F oven until dried – approximately 12 hours depending on the type and size of tomato used.  I like to start checking them after about half the time - the photo below shows what these looked like at 6 hours.

I continue checking them and removing any that are ready until they’ve all dried to my liking. 

Then I store them in a ziplock bag in the freezer, and they’re conveniently on-hand whenever I need them.

  Simply remove as many as  needed from the ziplock and soften in a small amount of oil or water (depending on the recipe) prior to using.  The photo below shows the final product before being packaged for storage.
