Oven Roasted Tomatoes MAGIC ELIXIRS (TM)

As a gal that likes to eat seasonally, I am always looking for ways to enjoy the things I love all year round.  This recipe is simple, delicious and is a way to infuse tomato goodness all throughout the year. Although this recipe is very simple it also requires some finesse.  You will need to be watching, observing and pulling the tomatoes out as they are done.  Once you get it though, it’s the gift of a lifetime and you will spend every August and September roasting tomatoes so you can enjoy a little bit of summer every time you pull them out of the freezer.

Enjoy these tomatoes in meatballs, a meatloaf, on a salad, in soup or chili, on top of cauliflower rice or vegetables or on top of chicken or a pork chop.  Freeze in batches and defrost when you want to use.

  1. Your takeover was outstanding. Creative and inspiring recipes. I am off to the farmers market to buy up all their tomatoes. Have a great vacation. 🤸‍♀️

    1. Thank you so much Nancy

  2. I’ve made these twice now, and although it is a long process, the results are amazing! I can eat these things like candy – so yummy! I’ll use them in the meatballs that we are making tonight! and in and on everything else we eat they are so good! 🙂

    1. Oh my gosh… Thank you so much

  3. So how do I know when these are done? In the oven now. Will they be crispy when done?

    1. not crispy. soft and most the water gone

    2. oops sorry .. for this recipe they are a little browned and delicious.. you almost can’t go wrong. they start to break down and fall apart

  4. Hi, do you recommend not adding any oil or salt?

    1. For drying, no… You can do an all together different thing – add oil, add salt – which is delicious too.
