DIRECTIONS

  • Rinse the tomatoes. Cut them in half lengthwise and scoop out the seeds and centers with a small spoon.
  • Place the tomato halves, cut side down, on a plate large enough to hold them in 1 uncrowded layer. Microwave, uncovered, on HIGH for 15 minutes.
  • Pour off any excess liquid. With a spatula, gently turn the tomatoes over, patting the pulp back into the skins as you turn.
  • Microwave, uncovered, on HIGH for 10-15 minutes more, depending on the size of the tomatoes, or until they have completely collapsed and are dried out but still supple.
  • Remove from the microwave and let stand 30 minutes without disturbing.
  • Lift the tomatoes off the plate and use right away or store in a loosely sealed plastic bag in the refrigerator.
  • After 2 days, seal tightly and return the bag to the refrigerator. The dried tomatoes will keep indefinitely.
  • Note: Don't worry if the tomatoes seem collapsed beyond hope after the first 15 minutes. When they dry out more and cool off, their shape returns.
