Right about now tomatoes are flooding farmers’ markets, and just like that, they’ll be gone in a few weeks. That’s just the way it goes as summer fades into fall. Canning is one way to extend the season, but that takes a bit of time not everyone has available. Another way, and one that can take your salad to the next level, is to slow roast them.
Slow roasting takes some time, but it’s all hands off. Pop them in the oven while your doing another project around the house, and you’ll be rewarded for weeks, and months to come. Stored in the fridge, with a thick layer of olive oil, these Slow Roasted Tomatoes will last for up to 2 months. That is, if you can resist eating them all at once.
