Oven dried sun dried tomatoes

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
Tomatoes (from 10 to 1000!)
Salt (coarse is better)
Olive Oil
Assorted herbs, optional

Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Half or Quarter the tomatoes depending on size. Place them cut side up on baking sheets and salt them down. The salt is used mainly to expedite the drying process. Bake at 300 for four to eight hours--until 'maters are dried. Dip in vinegar, and pack in sterilized jars with Olive Oil. Add herbs if you wish (Oregano seems an obvious first choice, but others would be interesting). Refrigerate. Keeps for many many months. USES: In cold salads, tossed in pasta (hmmm...like a creme sauce with slivers of dried tomatoes...I'm getting hungry...), in omlettes, etc. etc.
