Sun dried tomatoes are delicious but they are also really expensive. The solution? Oven dried tomatoes. I picked up two boxes (cases?) of roma tomatoes at Sams Club the other day and they were about six bucks a pop with about 25 tomatoes per case. That's a hundred dried tomatoes when all is said and done which I estimate would cost about $75 bucks for the store bought sun dried tomatoes. And they're better; they taste nice and fresh, and they aren't packed in oil. Once you're finished making them just throw them in a zip lock bag and put them in the freezer until you're ready to use them!
Oven Dried Tomatoes
20 Roma Tomatoes (halved)
Salt & Pepper
Set oven to 150 degrees. Lay out halved tomatoes on cookie sheets as close together as possible, cut side up. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with kosher salt and freshly cracked pepper. Place in oven and dry for approximately 16-20 hours (putting them in overnight is ideal).
