Sun-Dried Tomatoes – In the Oven

If you’ve ever purchased sun-dried tomatoes, you know how expensive they can be.  I made a recipe not long ago that called for them and I almost left them out of the recipe once I saw the price ($5.79 a jar)!  After doing some research I decided to try my own hand at making some; they’re super easy and well worth the effort!

I sliced Tommy Toe tomatoes in halves and laid them on a baking sheet.

I sprinkled them with Pink Himalayan sea salt, course ground pepper, oregano and olive oil.

Turn the oven on the lowest setting.

Bake for 10-12 hours until they look like this.

I put mine in a quart size freezer ziploc bag, used a straw to remove all of the air and froze them.  Frozen they will last 1 year.

If you prefer, you can pack them in a jar, cover with olive oil and refrigerate 2-3 weeks.
