Rainbow sundried tomatoes

So what do you do if you have heaps of ripe tomatoes and can't use them all before they spoil? sun dried tomatoes (well oven dried tomatoes) :D

and what better way to make a rainbow than with different coloured tomatoes

I only had my one green zebra, but had 7 wapsipinicon peach tomatoes so that was a good start. Everything got washed and cut in half.  Then I removed the seeds, and I have to say it took a little while but once I got the hang of it I could get the seeds out quickly.


All laid out on the baking tray ready to go


only 3 tigerellas, but again better than nothing


and then a bucket load of tommy toes :D


in a jug I put some olive oil


Added some Italian herbs and gave it a mix.  I then very lightly drizzled all the tomatoes with the oil and sprinkled some salt over the top


I had to save the seeds :D tigerella


I only managed to get a small amount of seeds from the green zebra :D but I'm so glad that I did get some.  I was so worried that I wouldn't get any at all


wapsipinicon peach, not bad from 7 tomatoes


tommy toes... OMG I have so many seeds now :D


I got a jar from IKEA :D it cost $3 and it was huge.  I gave it a good wash and let it dry


this is what they looked like after an hour and a half


and then after 2 and a half hours the tommy toes were definitely ready to come out and some of the small tomatoes were ready too



so I put the bigger ones in for another 20 minutes


and then they were ready :D so I let them cool a little


put the let over oil in the jar


and added the tomatoes


I then added a little extra oil to make sure the tomatoes were covered


and sealed the jar


Yum!!!! I can't wait to eat them (well other than the taste testers once they were done hehe)
