Slooooowww Roasted Tomatoes

There was an excess of tomatoes on my table last night, a product of my garden and the Organic Gardening test garden, so I decided to throw a bunch of them in the oven and slow roast them. I threw everything in there: cherry tomatoes, green grape tomatoes, giant green heirloom tomatoes, yellow tomatoes. I sliced the larger tomatoes, because even I don’t have 12 hours to sit and watch them roast, but the smaller tomatoes I put in whole with just a fork puncture the keep them from bursting. I set my oven to 200°, drizzled them in olive oil, and put those babies in…Tomato 1

2 hours later…

Tomato 2

2 hours (and many peeks into the oven) after that…

Tomato 3

okay, these are so pretty they deserve a close-up…

Tomato 4

The flavor of these tomatoes is absolutely mind-blowing. Even tomatoes that I wouldn’t normally like, I love when they’re prepared like this. Mine took 4 hours in the 200° oven. Then I put them all in a tupperware dish in anticipation of their future use. Okay, so maybe a few didn’t make it into the tupperware dish, but they were delicious and I was, well…I wasn’t even hungry, but they are that good.
