Love the taste of Sun Dried Tomatoes?

Like me, did you think they were too difficult to make yourself? Guess again!

Make these little babies in just over 90 minutes. A beautiful little snack, or throw them in your favourite garden salad. Delicious!!

Sun Dried Tomatoes


  1. Cut the tomatoes into quarters lengthways and use a spoon to gently scrape out the excess seeds (not all of them if you don't want - just some so they aren't so wet).

  2. Place the tomatoes on a baking tray on a piece of baking paper.

  3. Gently sprinkle olive oil (not too much) over the top and season with the salt and pepper.

  4. Place in a very slow oven (100 - 120 degrees) for an hour and a half.

  5. Keep a close eye on them - the riper the tomato the faster they will cook.

  6. The tomatoes should still be a little soft to the touch but not black.

  7. The tomatoes should still be flexible

  8. The tomatoes should be slightly shriveled

  9. They should feel like a sultana, still have some give but the outside is dry.

  10. Tomatoes should feel 'leathery'

Recipe Hints and Tips:

  • Sun Dried Tomatoes are suitable to freeze.
