September Fruits

September is here. This is the time of year that leaf start falling to the ground, the days are getting shorter, and you are picking the last of the tomatoes off the vines.

Now there is a few different things you can do with your surplus of tomatoes. You can jar them, pickle them and make a relish, bulk batch of tomato sauce and freeze it down, fresh tomato and basil soup is always nice. But my favourite thing to do is dry them and jar them. These little dried up tomatoes can pack quite a punch and can be used in many different dishes from salads to pastas, stews, sandwiches and almost anything you can imagine

Quarter your tomatoes, place on baking tray, drizzle  olive oil over them. sprinkle some salt and cracked black pepper along with a little roast garlic, oregano and fresh chopped parsley. Put in oven on low heat for around 4 hours or until half size. Take out and place on window ledge so the moister continually comes out. Place in a plastic container and keep refrigerated until the next time you need some love in your food.
