How to Make Slow-Roasted Tomatoes

In our opinion, slow roasted tomatoes are definitely worth the wait, adding a wonderful punch of flavour to almost anything you add them to. You might look at the cooking time and be put off, but don’t be. These really are worth it, and it’s not as if you need to do anything, just wait.

While I do like sun dried tomatoes, sometimes I find them a bit too strong. That’s not the case at all with these.

They have all the lovely fresh flavor of a fresh tomato, and they’re still that little bit juicy too. It’s also a great way to make the most of tomatoes that aren’t quite as full of flavor as they are in their peak season.

In our opinion, slow roasted tomatoes are definitely worth the wait, adding a wonderful punch of flavour to almost anything you add them to.

Ingredients

  • About 10 large, ripe tomatoes
  • Olive oil
  • 2tsp fresh thyme leaves
  • 1-2tsp caster sugar
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions

1

Heat the oven to 140°C.

2

Lightly brush two baking trays with a little olive oil.

3

Rinse and dry the tomatoes.

4

Cut each tomato in half length ways and place cut side up on the prepared trays.

5

Lightly drizzle the tomatoes with olive oil, then add the thyme, a sprinkle of sugar and some salt and pepper.

6

Roast for around 2-2½ hours, or until the tomatoes are lightly dried and darkened. As a result the tomatoes should have shrunk to about half of their original size and should not be wet. Remove from the oven when done and set aside to cool.

7

Once the tomatoes have cooled to room temperature, you can cook with them immediately or freeze in small batches.

8

They can also be layered in a sterilized glass jar adding a couple of garlic cloves and a few leaves of thyme, and then covered with olive oil. Seal the jar and shake gently to dislodge any air bubbles and store them in the fridge for up to 4 weeks.
