Ingredients

2 pounds ripe plum tomatoes, cored and cut in half lengthwise

1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt

Extra-virgin olive oil

4 to 5 sprigs fresh herbs, such as thyme, rosemary, oregano, or marjoram

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 250 degrees F. Lay the tomatoes in a single layer on a sheet pan and sprinkle with the salt. Cook the tomatoes for 5 to 6 hours or until dried and slightly shriveled, but still plump. 
  2. If not using immediately, store tomatoes in a sealed container in the refrigerator, for 3 to 4 days; or layered in a container with herbs and covered with olive oil. Store, covered in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
