Oven-Dried Tomatoes

This is another version of saving and preserving tomatoes. Dried tomatoes are really good addition to sandwiches, pasta and to a lot of dishes. This recipe is from Mario Batali’s “Molto Italiano” cookbook and I just loved it!!!

I did all of these before going to bed and by morning, I have oven-dried tomatoes. 🙂

    Stupid question…how do you keep these? Just throw them in the freezer afterwards or seal them (dry)?

      @J: very good question. Yes you can put them in the fridge or freezer.
      What I did in this batch is pour olive oil in the container with the tomatoes and put in the fridge.

    Olive oil with this sounds really delicious. Thank you, Diona! I didn’t know that you can dry tomatoes like this.
