How to make sun dried tomatoes at home from Edible Times

Oven-dried Tomatoes

  • Author: Christina
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 5-12 hours
  • Total Time: 5-12 hours (not all active)
  • Yield: Cook's choice!
  • Category: Techniques
  • Method: Baking


The easiest kitchen venture ever! Five minutes to prep for the oven, and a low-maintenance bake that ends with big flavor. 


  • The best tomatoes you can find, I like using organic Roma or grape tomatoes
  • Olive oil
  • Optional: fresh-chopped herbs like thyme, basil, or rosemary


  1. Preheat oven to 200° F.
  2. Slice tomatoes into halves or quarters.
  3. Space out on a rack on a large baking pan. If you don't have a rack, just lay the tomatoes directly on the pan.
  4. Dry tomatoes out in oven at least five hours, or overnight.
  5. Store in refrigerator covered in olive oil for up to a month.
