    Process of cutting tomatoes

  • We put the baking sheet in the oven and set the temperature to 80 degrees. We leave the oven door slightly ajar so that the moisture evaporates unhindered. For this purpose, it is very convenient to use a spoon by holding it on the side of the door. Every 2 hours we monitor the drying process, checking for readiness. Tomatoes should curl from the edges. Depending on the size and fleshiness of tomatoes, it may require more or less time for drying. But the average readiness time is about 6 hours. To check the readiness, pick up a tomato slice, check if it is not wet, and bends well in different directions, then you can turn off the stove.

  • Let the tomatoes cool down. Peel the garlic and cut it into thin slices. We put the garlic slices inside the tomatoes and put them in a glass jar, tamping them tightly. If desired, each layer is sprinkled with dried herbs. Having laid the whole batch in this way, fill the tomatoes with vegetable oil heated to 80 degrees. We leave the jar to cool at room temperature, and then put it in the refrigerator for storage.
