Very good! I used vine-ripened regular tomatoes and sprinkled them with garlic, kosher salt, fresh pepper, fresh thyme and oregano. Some of them took more like 7 hours to dry out. Fantastic flavor and super easy.

These were so easy! I popped them in the oven (I used 3 "on the vine tomatoes) and six hours later they were just about perfect! Also, after they dried I packed them in a little jar with some oilve oil and a little dried basil to use in a recipe the following day -- that really turned out great! Thanks for posting! Made for Holiday Tag January 2010!

I made this recipe using cherry tomatoes, I used a variation of cherry and yellow pear. It only took 4-5 hours using cherry types, and probably best to use one variety as they took different times to dry. But overall they cooked well, some dried better than others, but kept checking them and ate what was was not dried properly anyway...lol I have poured olive oil over them and put into a clean sterilized jar for keeping. Can't wait to try these with larger tomatoes now. Thanks katew great recpe.

I made these last summer. Tried first drying them out in the sun but the process it was just too lenghty and had to watch out for rainy days. This method is great. Sun dried tomatoes are not available here and if they are at exorbitant prices so I'm so happy to have come across this recipe.I stored them in the freezer.

Can it get any easier? I mistakenly sliced mine before I saw they needed to be in quarters, so I reduced the bake time, but not quite enough. Some were a little too crisp, but I think they'll add some great flavor to stews, while the others are just right. Thanks katew! Made for ZWT8 trip to Spain/Portugal.

An amazing little tomato recipe that lends itself to be easy, delightful, and cost cutting. And using your excess tomatoes to boot. I also used roma, and these worked out perfectly as I did them in my little toaster oven. It smelled wonderful, and tasted even better when popping them into your mouth sitting atop a baguette.

Awesome, awesome, awesome!!! One of the things I am not so fond of in sundried tomatoes is that sometimes they're beyond tomato leather... and this recipe allows me to choose just how dried I want them! Wonderful! I used them in Bread Machine Stuffed Rosemary Focaccia tonight, and they were delicious. Thanks, Kate! Made for Fall 2009 PAC.
