Oven Roasted Tomatoes

Pantry Secrets: a jar of oven roasted tomatoes in olive oil
Winter tomatoes got you down? Try roasting them.

Winter tomatoes are bland, but by roasting tomatoes in the oven you can punch up the flavor quite a bit. Use Roma or plum tomatoes for best quality.

Slice the tomatoes in half. Sprinkle with kosher salt and some sugar, then add some cracked pepper if you wish. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper and drizzle olive oil on the paper. Lay the tomatoes face down on the paper, then drizzle with oil.

Put into an oven preheated to 200°F/95°C for about two hours. Turn the tomatoes face up and return to the oven for two to four hours, until they are somewhat shriveled.

Use as is or dice into a sauce. Store in a jar and completely cover them with olive oil. They'll keep for may weeks in the refrigerator so long as they remain completely covered.
