My mum is terrible when it comes to letting things turn brown, mushy and unrecognisable in the fridge. She was going to throw some wrinkled old tomatoes away the other day, but I rescued them knowing that they would be perfect for my oven blush tomatoes!
I like this recipe for old tomatoes that are way past their best.
Take some tomatoes, cherry are best:
Slice them in half across the middle and lay in a oven proof dish. sprinkle on some sea salt, a pinch of sugar, some herbs, anything you have that you may like and a sprinkling of olive oil. Today I used some herbs de Provence.
Next time you have put the oven on for something, when you have finished cooking whatever you were doing, get the temperature up to 220 and then pop in the tomatoes and immediately turn the oven off and just leave them in there over night.
I know, the before and after pictures are very similar but the taste is great. They are like a very cheaply made version of sunblush tomatoes and great to add to pasta, or salad or part of a buffet, love em and now I have a bowl full to last me a few days. You can experiment with adding other flavours of course, some garlic salt perhaps or different herbs, maybe even fresh garlic or fresh herbs would be good.
