It is my former neighbour's birthday and what do you give somebody who has everything???
Edible gifts are always a good choice, I think.
Well, these tomatoes are not sun dried, but rather oven dried.
It is amazing how the flavour intensifies.
Makes you think of more southern shores!
As they are made from fresh and with no preservatives, they should be eaten within a week.
Not a problem in our house!
Cut tomatoes in two or three, depending on the thickness.
Spread them on an oven tray
and drizzle over some good salt (I like flaky Maldon salt),
and I also used dried oregano.
Pop it all in the oven on 130 degrees for about 3 hours.
Cool and add them to clean jars. Add olive oil till it covers the tomatoes.
That oil will be amazing on salads once the tomatoes are gone!
