Homemade Semi Sun Dried Tomatoes can be added to your sandwiches, salads or pizza's for extra flavour.
I was very surprised to learn how easy it is to make semi sun dried tomatoes. After watching the popular television show "Better Homes and Gardens" I feel confident this is something we could all do with ease. What a great way to use those left over ripened tomatoes.
This homemade recipe will add extra flavour to your sandwiches, salads or homemade pizza's. Tailoring this recipe to your taste buds is easy, just replace the fresh herbs suggested in this recipe with your favourite flavours. It is also a healthy alternative to the supermarket version because this recipe contains no preservatives. Enjoy!
6 x Tomatoes Olive Oil Sea Salt Black Pepper corns 2 Tablespoons fresh herbs (eg. Parsley, Thyme, Rosemary or Basil) 2 Garlic cloves
1. Preheat the oven to 120c (250f) degrees.
2. Cut out the top of the tomatoes (the brown middle section).
I also watched this segment of Better Homes & Gardens and will be attempting this recipe this afternoon. I think however that the tomatoes were also sprinkled with a little sugar to bring out the sweetness, reduce the acidity.

That is correct Better Homes and Gardens did sprinkle some sugar on the tomatoes. :)

Thanks for the sugar tip. I am just about to start this and I also thought that sugar was ivolved when I saw this on TV. I am going to use herbs and chilli flakes. Best thing about this recipie is that all the ingredients are already in the pantry or fridge.
Will update when tasting occurs in about 5 hours!!!
