Chuck’s Sun Dried Tomatoes

Chuck's Sun Dried Tomatoes




Roma tomatoes
Pot of boiling salty water
bowl of water and ice
sprigs rosemary
sprigs thyme
Olive oil
Salt and cracked pepper
Confectionary sugar


Step 1

Score one end of each tomato and drop them into boiling salty water until the skin starts to peel off (about 20 seconds).

Step 2

Then shock them in a bath of ice water.

Step 3

With a small knife peel off the skin (it should come off quite easily).

Step 4

Slice the tomatoes lengthwise and remove seeds with a spoon.

Step 5

Lay the tomatoes face down on a baking tray covered with parchment paper.

Step 6

Sprinkle salt and cracked pepper and remember to season every tomato.

Step 7

Roughly chop 2 sprigs of rosemary and thyme and sprinkle over tomatoes.

Step 8

Sweeten tomatoes with a light dusting of confectionary sugar (sprinkling through a wire strainer will help an even dusting with no clumping!).

Step 9

Drizzle olive oil over top, again making sure to get some on every tomato.

Step 10

Cook in an oven at 100 degrees for about 8 hours.
