Slow-Roasted Tomatoes ~ easy 'sun dried' tomatoes

Slow-Roasted Tomatoes ~ Making your own 'sun dried tomatoes' is easy when you use your oven.

Yellow & Red Roma Tomatoes
This summer, we've been enjoying lots of different varieties of homegrown tomatoes ~ in lots of different ways.  We've been picking the tomatoes from our garden, our neighbors have shared some of their tomato bounty with us & we've harvested veggies over at the Community Garden.  Some of the many ways we've been enjoying these tasty veggies (botanically speaking, they're fruits, but I always think of them as veggies) is to ~ simply add them to our garden salads; throw them into the juicer; and by slow-roasting them in the oven.  Homemade 'sun-dried tomatoes', if you will.

I've found this easy Slow-Roasted Tomato recipe over at Smitten Kitchen & it's a treat!  So easy to make & so very tasty.  So far, I've added the Slow-Roasted Tomatoes to ~ warm salads; slipped them into sandwiches; enjoyed them on French bread with cheese; and munched on them, as-is.  They make such a delightful morsel & when they are prepared this way, it perfectly heightens the robust flavors of homegrown, summer tomatoes!

I like removing the seeds before I slow-roast my tomatoes ~ it's easy to do...

Tomatoes are all prepped and ready to go into the oven...

A couple of hours later, you've got Slow-Roasted Tomatoes ~ Ahh! The perfect condensed flavor of summer!
