They’re great on a pizza, a sandwich or just as a snack. But, sun dried tomatoes aren’t cheap, and for $1.99 you can make them yourself. Not only will you have the satisfaction of saving a few dollars – but you get to have the simple childlike joy of performing a Mr. Wizard-like experiment in your own kitchen.
Makes 4 oven-dried tomatoes
2 plum tomatoes
Salt and pepper
Slice plum tomatoes in half and season with salt and pepper. Bake in a 200 degree oven (or lowest setting) until tomatoes are completely dried, approximately 2 -3 hours. Store in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or freeze immediately.
