How to make it

  • Preheat oven to approx 230 fahrenheit
  • Cut each tomato in half lengthwise and arrange on a drying/cooling rack.
  • Set rack on a baking pan/sheet.
  • Drizzle oil lightly along the rows of tomato halves.
  • Strip the leaves off the stems of oregano and sprinkle liberally over tomatoes.
  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Dust very lightly with powdered/icing sugar.
  • Place tray and rack in oven and leave for at least 4 hours, taste one at this point, if you like them drier keep going, up to 16 hours for very dry.
  • If they won't be consumed within a couple of days store them covered in oil, (but please use a nice virgin oil, not a vegetable oil over your beautiful tomatoes).

    Well, I've been telling a bloke about these and thought that I'd look for a recipe. I found your's in 30 seconds flat. I'm ready to try these out tonight so, I'll be picking up the tomatoes on the way home. Just two questions though, I hope you don't mind? Now that makes three questions, sorry. How long do they keep if I have them in oil? and Should they be refrigerated also?

    Hi Cooper, Mystic River1 did give credit on the recipe, it was just listed at an awkward spot. Would have been nice as a fellow foodie to message her about it first and let her add the credit in the recipe where it was easier to find.

    Nice recipe, but why can't you give credit to the author and photographer instead of making it appear this is your work? The recipe and photo are from
