Photos, Recipes & CookTales For Those Who Enjoy Cooking




A CookTale

Don’t take the lazy way out and buy “Sun Dried Tomatoes”. Chances are their not sun dried, but oven dried and over dried. So much easier to purchase a dozen firm ripe Roma Tomatoes, and dry them yourself. You can also control just how you prefer them. As seen in the photo, I prefer them still pliable with the richness of the oven drying evident with each bite.


12 or more Roma Tomatoes (halved)
2 TB of EVOO
1 TB of Kosher Salt


1. Heat the oven to 325 degrees

2. Place the halved Tomatoes, cut side up on a non stick baking sheet. Evenly sprinkle with Salt & the 2 TB of EVOO.

3. Roast in the oven for at least 1 hour, check on their progress. If necessary continue to roast until they have reached the stage of dryness you prefer.

4. Allow them to cool & they’ll stay fresh in the fridge for a few weeks, but I doubt that they’ll last that long.
