Slow Roasted Cherry or Grape Tomatoes
"I found myself with a large container of ripe cherry tomatoes so started looking to see what I could do with them and found this recipe on the Smitten Kitchen site. Love it so much now looking to see the various ways I can use them. Better than sun dried tomatoes. "
- 2 quarts (or whatever you have) cherry or grape tomatoes
- 2 whole gloves of garlic, unpeeled
- Olive oil
- Dried Italian herbs (thyme, rosemary, etc.)
- Salt and pepper
What You Will Need
No special items needed.
Preheat oven to 225 degrees F.
Halve the cherry tomatoes crosswise and arrange on a parchment-lined baking sheet along with the garlic cloves.
Drizzle olive oil, just enough to make the tomatoes shine. Sprinkle the tops with the herbs (if using) and the salt & pepper.
Place in the oven and bake for about three hours, or until the tomatoes appear shriveled and very little juice is left inside. If tomatoes are larger it may take a little longer
Use immediately or place the cooled tomatoes in a jar and cover with extra virgin olive oil and store in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
