Slow Roasted Tomatoes

This is the first recipe I ever tried for roasting tomatoes several years ago and it’s a good one! But you’ll want to make sure you’ll be home for awhile, because the roasting takes 7 1/2 hours! It’s a great recipe to make on a cold day though, because with all that roasting time, your kitchen will be warm and cozy! You’ll just have to plan ahead a little to give yourself enough time!

Slow-roasting tomatoes gives them a rich flavor. I used store-bought plum tomatoes and they turned out great, so I can imagine how wonderful home-grown plum tomatoes would be after roasting!

If you like tomatoes, you’ll want to try this recipe out! And like I said, the only downside is that you’ll need to plan ahead when you are making these, since the tomatoes roast in your oven (at 200˚F) for 7 1/2 hours. But I think it’s definitely worth the time it takes!
