Oven-Dried Tomatoes

Preserve large quantities of your crop by drying tomatoes in your oven, and store them in olive oil in the fridge for a ready accent to many dishes.

  • If you have a ton of tomatoes, try drying ā€” otherwise this method could get expensive.

These oven-dried tomatoes are lovely but are really only worth making if you have a glut of tomatoes from your own plants (or someone else’s). Otherwise, they work out to be very expensive. It may be hard to be exact about the quantity you'll end up with after drying tomatoes, as it will depend on the size and juiciness of your tomatoes.
