HOMemade Sun Dried Tomatoes
Homemade sun-dried tomatoes are so easy & convenient to make & tastes so much better than the store bought ones. Make it in summer and use it through the year.
  • 4 kilos - Juicy, ripened tomatoes
  • salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Olive oil
  • Italian seasoning
  1. Wash and wipe the tomatoes well.
  2. Slice them as evenly as possible so that all of them can dry at the same time.
  3. Slice them into 5mm thick slices. Don't make it too thin as they will shrink and get too crispy.
  4. Spread them on plates and sprinkle salt and pepper on them.
  5. Place the plates in a place where there is sun all through out the day.
  6. We sometimes cover a mat with cling film and place the tomatoes on them on the terrace. This way the tomatoes can dry the whole day.
  7. By evening get the tomatoes inside the house and flip them.
  8. Do not at any cost leave them out as they will soften because of the fog at night.
  9. Next day place the tomatoes back in the sun for the whole day.
  10. By the end of the day, the tomatoes must be completely dry, if you have harsh sun.
  11. If not, keep it again for another day or two till the tomatoes are dry and crisp with no hint of moisture.
  12. Once the tomatoes are well dried, store some of them in a zip loc bag for later use.
  13. Add the remaining into a jar and the Italian seasoning to it.
  14. Now pour the olive oil till all the tomatoes are covered in the oil.
  15. Give it a good shake and set them aside for a week so that the tomatoes soak up some of the oil.
  16. You can used this in pastas and salads and the oil in the dressing.
