For some reason harvesting my produce is always put on the back burner, consequently when I do harvest I have an excess. I pick an ice-cream container full at least once a week so I have been trying to find recipes to use them. I love these semi-dried little gems. They are delicious on a cracker with a bit of cheese or chopped up and tossed through pasta or with the addition of a little chopped onion, avocado,coriander and lime juice make a lovely salsa. Today I am making a roasted tomato sauce for pizza bases. It is smelling delicious and I will take a photo when it is made, but for now, here are the photos of the semi-dried tomatoes.
|I started off with an ice-cream container of tomatoes which I washed and de-stemmed.|
|Then I cut them in half, added garlic cloves, thyme and rosemary and drizzled with olive oil.|
|They then got roasted in a very slow oven for about three hours.|
|And Viola'. Beautiful semi-dried tomatoes!|
