Set oven to 100 degrees C or less. Clean and dry any type of tomatoes, though I favour Roma, and the cherry ones work well too. Remove core, and cut into pieces, remembering that the drying process will shrink them somewhat. If using cherry tomatoes, just halve through the core. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and any other options you're choosing to use. Put tomatoes on a baking paper lined baking tray, skin side down. Dry slowly. Expect them to take at least three hours, When done remove from oven. Leave to cool slightly before storing in clean jars filled with olive oil - store in fridge. Keeps for months:)
Delicious way to store tomatoes.
