Buffet on Table: Bloggers Choice
Day 26: Preserving Summer Bounty – Slow Roasted Tomatoes
It has been a great month of non stop blogging with our mega marathon, Buffet on Table. All good things have to come to end and today is the last day for the marathon 🙁
Now I can imagine how much this bounty would be for people with lot of tomato plants — they must be bombarded with tons of tomatoes. If you are one of them, then please share how you preserve your tomatoes in the comments below. Thank you.
I first saw the recipe for slow roasting tomatoes on Nupur’s blog few years back, but never got around to making it. Her recipe involves roasting tomatoes in a warm (200°F) oven for about 12 hours. This recipe from Vegetarian Times magazine uses a hotter oven (300°F) and tomatoes are roasted for a little over 2 hours total.
After roasting tomatoes, tomatoes become super sweet, slightly smoky and very delicious. With just a few minutes of hands-on time, you will have tomatoes to be used in different dishes. I’ve included some ideas at the end of the recipe.
