ready for the hardest part? resist any temptation to put ANYTHING on them. not salt, not oregano, not italian seasoning, not even unicorn blessings of good tidings to all. well, i guess you can put a tini drizzle of the last one on them babies, but, at least just try them out unadulterated one time before getting cray cray with additions. these are sooo sooo good as an ingredient in their perfect pop of tomato glory.
speaking of pop, pop them in the oven and check the time. leave them in there for 4 hours, check them, try one, and see if they can go in for another hour or so. it really will depend on the size, ripeness and lusciousness of the tomato you have. these ones were in for 5 hours. mmmmmm. my mouth is watering just looking at these.
