This is a simple recipe, but there is nothing simple about the wonderful flavor of these delicious, home grown, roasted tomatoes. Store them in a jar in the fridge and use them on avocado toast, appetizers, garlic bread, pasta, fish, meats, eggs, soups, or any dish where you want to add flavor. They can even be frozen. What a great way to use up the end of season tomatoes from your garden. Enjoy!

How to Make BONNIE’S SLOW ROASTED TOMATOES WITH GARLIC & BASIL

Step-by-Step

  1. Choose firm, ripe garden tomatoes, all about the same size. The ones I used here were about the size of a golf ball. You can also use this cooking method for cherry tomatoes.
  2. Rinse the tomatoes and pat dry. Remove the stems. Cut them in half across the tomato. Core and remove the seeds.
  3. Place the tomatoes in a jelly roll pan or similar pan with a rim. I used a heavy Wilton pan.
  4. Mix olive oil, Chopped garlic, (I used 8 large cloves; we love garlic!) add 4 tablespoons of dried leaf basil, and one teaspoon salt and one teaspoon coarse black pepper.
  5. Put the lid and ring on the jar and shake until mixed. use a spoon to drizzle the mixture over all the tomatoes, making sure the garlic gets in each tomato half.
  6. Roast the prepared tomatoes in the oven 325 for 2 1/2 hours. (If you are using bigger tomatoes, it make take a few minutes longer.)
  7. Here is how it looks.
  8. Roasted tomatoes are delicious on toast with a little cream cheese. Add avocado! Bacon! Yummy!
  9. Store in wide-mouthed jar in the fridge for up to 5 days. Use them in anything your creative imagination can come up with.
  10. These roasted tomatoes may be frozen. Fill pint wide- mouth jars 1 1/2 inches from the top of the rim, place them in the freezer WITHOUT a lid on until the tomatoes are frozen. Then apply the lid and ring. You can defrost the jar in the fridge.
  11. Enjoy!
    At the end of the season, save every one of your precious tomatoes to make this recipe. They are a gift!
