making your own "sundried" tomatoes Slice, but not too thin. Spread them out on a lined cookie sheet and drizzle with olive oil, a little thyme (or whatever you like), and salt & pepper. Bake in oven at for hours, depending on thickness.
Roasted grape tomatoes - cut in half, toss with lots of olive oil, salt & pepper, & lots of sliced garlic. Try not to crowd them on the cookie sheet - the garlic gets crispy, & the tomatoes are half-way to "raisin" texture! To die for!
KEEPING BERRIES FROM GOING MOLDY! one part vinegar (white or apple cider probably work best) and ten parts water. Dump berries into mixture and swirl around. Drain, rinse vinegar kills any mold spores and other bacteria
Commenter said: I use grape tomatoes and dry at 170 for about hours. i dip them in white vinegar before putting them in jars with a clove of garlic, a bit of fresh herbs and covering with olive oil. I keep mine in the frig for many months
I used regular tomatoes from my garden--1st removing the juice & seeds. Some I cut too thin since they were good-sized tomatoes. I would recommend using Romas & cut them in half. I checked them every hour or so & turned them over at 3 hours. I turned off the oven at about 7 hours & left them in there overnight. It was successful! To use them, soften in olive oil with herbs (optional). Adds a great punch to sauces. --c
