Oven-dried Tomatoes

Oven-dried tomatoes can be used to add flavour to pasta dishes, as pizza topping, in casseroles and baked dishes. This recipe is best suited to smaller varieties such as cherry tomatoes. If using larger tomatoes you may need to extend the cooking time a little.


Oven-dried Tomatoes


To make this you will need:

  • Tomatoes
  • Olive oil
  • a selection of herbs (optional)
  • screw top jars



Heat the oven to 120⁰C. Cut the tomatoes in half (or quarters if they're large) and place cut side up on oven trays. Bake for 2 hours until the tomatoes are well cooked, but not completely dried out.





Pack the hot tomatoes into sterilised jars. Cover with hot olive oil and seal.

If adding herbs layer the hot tomatoes with basil leaves, slices of garlic, oregano etc.

Stored in the fridge the tomatoes will keep for several weeks.

    1. The drying process enhances the flavour so it's a great way to use up those tomatoes that taste a bit bland.

  7. I made these last year and they were fabulous although I froze them rather than preserving them in oil ... then I simply threw them into all sorts of dishes for that wonderful rich tomato flavour. Must do more this year as I have now run out! #WasteLessWednesday
