Oven-Dried Tomatoes

Prepare these the night before to take with you on a picnic or hike.

Total Time:
2 hr 10 min
Prep:
10 min
Cook:
2 hr

Yield:
4 dozen dried tomatoes
Level:
Easy

Ingredients
  • 12 firm-ripe Roma tomatoes
  • Olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
Directions
  • Preheat an oven to 275 degrees.

  • Slice each tomato in 1/2 lengthwise, without coring. Then slice each piece in 1/2 again, top to bottom, so that you have 4 equal-size slices from each tomato. Push or squeeze out seed pockets.

  • Lightly brush a large baking sheet with olive oil. Spread tomato slices on baking sheet. Brush tops of tomatoes lightly with more oil, then sprinkle generously with salt, pepper, and thyme.

  • Put tomatoes in oven and bake until dehydrated but still slightly flexible, about 2 hours (check after 1 1/2 hours and make sure tomatoes are not scorching).
