Sun-Blushed Tomatoes

I love sun-blushed Tomatoes, they are sweet and soft, can be eaten on salads in pasta dishes or just on their own with bread. The Tomatoes here in Spain are so tasty so I decided to make a jar. You can also use the oil for frying onions or making sauces….

Ingredients:

1 Punnet Cherry Tomatoes

1 Punnet Baby Plum Tomatoes

Fresh Marjarom Chopped

Dried Oregano Chopped

Extra Virgin Olive oil

Sea Salt approx 2 tsp

Sugar approx 2 tsp

Method:

Preheat oven to 100 degrees.

Half the tomatoes and spread onto baking trays, then sprinkle over the herbs, salt and sugar and drizzle over olive oil just enough to coat them.

Place in the oven and turn the heat down to the lowest, mine was set at 50 degrees.

Leave in the oven for a few hours or until the tomatoes are wilted.

I ended up turning the oven off and leaving them in overnight and in the morning they were perfect.

Seal this tightly, I cut a round circle out of some parchment paper and sat on the top of the jar before screwing on the lid.

Once opened it can be kept for approx 2/3 weeks.
