As promised my second favourite thing to do with cherry tomatoes (first is eating them still warm from the sun while in the garden).
Oven-dried Cherry Tomatoes with Thyme
|oven-dried cherry tomatoes Autumn 2011|
Wash all the cherry tomatoes you can harvest, discard any that are under-ripe or over-ripe and halve the rest. Place cut side up on a baking tray and sprinkle with sea salt and fresh thyme.
Bake for about 3 hours until shriveled and starting to brown around the outside. Leave to cool on trays before packing into sterile jars and covering with extra virgin olive oil. Seal and store until ready to use. Keep in the fridge once opened.
