Good way of using and preserving garden glut and a great (cheaper) alternative to sun-dried toms.


  • 30 large tomatoes
  • 6 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 4 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tbsp salt


  • STEP 1
    pre-heat the oven to the lowest setting (80-100C). Cut the toms in half and scoop out some of the seeds.
  • STEP 2
    sprinkle the inside of the toms with salt and leave cut side down on kitchen paper while you do the rest.
  • STEP 3
    Line an oven tray with foil to catch the drips and place a cooling rack inside. Put the toms in a bowl with the oil, garlic and oregano, stir to coat, then place the toms cut side down on the cooling tray.
  • STEP 4
    Put in the oven, with the door slighlty ajar, for 6-7 hours, turning after 5 hours.
  • STEP 5
    Leave to cool then place in a sterilised jar topped with olive oil.
