SEMI DRIED TOMATOES
This is all you are going to need....3 ingredients
How many times have you gone and bought semi dried tomatoes from a supermarket and found that they were bordering on rubber. Chewy, and sometimes weird tasting.
I'm sure if I dropped one on the floor, it would bounce..... and what about flavour...what flavour. They don't smell, or taste like a tomatoes, and those herbs! YUK! Once you have roasted these babies off, you will never buy those store ones again. Sorry Coles/Woolies.
Slice tomatoes in half, thinly slice garlic, rip the rosemary, massage some olive oil through this lot, s & p
Spread onto a baking tray.....
Pop into a slow oven....say 120 degrees for approx. 3 hours.
Nice and slow.....
Sweet tasting with hints of garlic and the rosemary finishes it off beautifully. I find if you use too many types of herbs it just muddy's up the flavour. Scoop into a jar and cover with oil.
Simple and uncomplicated flavours.
I had some on my avocado on toast for brekkie this morning.
Great with cheese, sprinkle on a homemade pizza or a fancy sandwich. YUM
Buying the raw ingredients and cooking/making jams/relishes is one way I try to avoid preservatives also having a veggie/herb garden helps with knowing where some of our food comes from.
How important is it for you to know what is in your food?
