    I actually made this recipe to look for a way to get rid of some of the excessive moisture in tomatoes that I was using in tomato pie - The first time I used fresh tomatoes and some tarragon vinegar - they were fantastic, could not stop eating them, almost did not have enough for the pie. The second time I used some rather sad roma tomatoes from the grocery store - I tasted one after the 30 minutes and decied to flip them and roast for another 30 - wow they were so very good - I used this method for my own roasted-tomato-pie-434080 but will be using a lot for all sort of recipes.

    Oh my gosh! So many things you could do with these. So very easy and such great flavour. The tomatoes have such a concentrated and wonderful taste when made this way. My tomatoes were fresh and ripe from the garden, so I am not sure if this gave a more concentrated flavour, but the taste is just like semi sun dried tomatoes. I made as per recipe although I sprinkled a small amount of sugar over them before baking. I didnt use the remaining vinegar because I used these straight away on toast. I also made them again today............ I adore them, and will be making this recipe fully using the remaining vinegar and use them cold on sandwhiches and such. Great recipe ratherbeswimmin this recipe is now etched on my brain permanently, so I will be able to make it anytime for a quick snack! Thanks for a absolutely wonderful recipe.

    I had to use up some ripe tomatoes fast and this was a great alternative to just chopping them up. I used a few on top of grilled chicken and the rest went into a soup.
