How to Make Easy Oven-Dried Tomatoes

Drying tomatoes in the oven couldn’t be easier. Here’s how:

  1. Slice tomatoes in half and squeeze out all the seeds and liquid.
  2. Place tomatoes cut-side up on a baking sheet which is lined with parchment paper. You must use parchment paper, not wax paper which will melt.
  3. Place the baking sheet in a 225-degree oven.
  4. Check each hour until the tomatoes are dried to your liking. The tomatoes should still be a bit moist, and not dried out completely.
  5. The drying time varies widely depending on the size and moisture of your tomatoes. It may take 3-4 hours for small tomatoes, and more for larger ones.
  6. You can store the dried tomatoes as they are in a storage container. Or, put them in a jar with olive oil.

So easy, healthy, and delicious!
