Before I left Ireland, I was trying to make sure that there was enough food for Mr B, who won’t be joining us until the beginning of August. I left the freezer full and I made sure that he had enough fresh fruit and vegetables to last him for few days (I know, I am adorable….)
While trying to clear out the kitchen of food that would not be used in the following week, I realized that there were 3 punnets of cherry tomatoes, my favorite food. Although Mr B likes tomatoes, I knew there was no way he would eat them all before they went off so I decided to oven-dry them in order to make them last.
Oven-dried tomatoes are very easy to make, a great solution to make those extra tomatoes last and sooooooo sweet…. Just delicious!
Place the cherry tomatoes in an oven tray, season them with salt and pepper and spray them with some olive oil and place them in a pre-heated oven at 120 degrees Celsius (250 Fahrenheit).
Leave them in the oven for 2 and half hours shaking them a little bit half way though.
You can use these tomatoes straight away for salads or sandwiches or you could just store them in a jar with olive oil and eat them as you please. that is if you can wait…
