STEP 1 - Gather your tomatoes! These were from our garden, but they are plentiful at every Farmer's Market. You can use red and yellow cherry type tomatoes, or Roma plum type.
STEP 2- Slice the tomatoes in half. If you are using Roma tomatoes, you may want to slice in thirds. You don't need to, but they may dry faster that way. Place them on a cookie sheet that is lined with parchment paper. I save the paper and reuse several times.
STEP 3- Thinly slice garlic to place on top of tomatoe slices. Make sure each tomatoe has garlic on it. Top with a sprinkle of sea salt and a drizzle of olive oil.
This is how they will look before you place them in your oven!
Bake at 200 degrees for about 4 hours. If you are drying Roma tomatoes it may take an additional hour or so. You will know when they are done by the way they look. They'll be brown and shriveled. Don't let them get too dark. It's better if they are a bit less dry.
Fresh from the oven. Let them cool a bit, then place in freezer container.
ENJOY ALL WINTER!!!
