Our special of the week is $1.75/ kg tomatoes. Last weekend I used these tomatoes to make semi-dried tomatoes. They were absolutely delicious and I would recommend anyone to have a go while tomatoes are this cheap. Instructions are from the ABC, process photos by Babs:
Roma tomatoes are the best variety, but any ripe tomatoes will do. Cut them in half lengthways and remove the seeds.
Place them on a baking tray skin down and season with salt, a little sugar and olive oil to taste. Sprinkle with your favourite sturdy herbs, eg oregano, thyme, marjoram. (Basil is best added at the end.)
Place them in the oven at 150 degrees C until fully roasted; check after about 40 minutes or so, but it may take much longer.
Cool them before storing in jars with olive oil to cover (and some basil and garlic if you like).
