OMG first time roasting fresh tomatoes, I am suppose to let them cool off? and blender and freeze them? Yikes but they taste so good right now. These were mixed with olive oil, basil, kosher salt then roasted a little over one hour at 400 degrees. Wish you could all smell and taste these, and the toasted part on the bottoms, ooh-wee.. If you haven't tried this with your toms, well, you must! Smile

Those look delicious! I am having a hard time deciding to preserve my tomatoes, it is so hard to pass up a fresh tomato to freeze/can it but if I don't I will regret it this winter when all I can get are store bought tomatoes!

You got my attention but I have a question. Do you take the skins off and how large are the pieces? I have some pretty good size toms that are almost ready to pick. Would like to try this. You mentioned blending them and then freezing them - what do you use it for when thawed out?

The skins were left on and were cut into roughly 2 inch by 2inch pieces. The pieces handled the 400 degree temp. real well and shrank a little, not much, lightly toasted on the bottom yet concentrated and sweetened the flavors and was still juicy. In my case after thawing out they will become spaghetti or pizza sauce.

Thanks for the info. I can just taste that spaghetti sauce. Wow, will definitely try it.

Now my day of researching this concept I have found that some people roast tomatoes at lower temperatures for longer, I am definately going to experiment a lot here
THanks so much for posting this Llama mom

I LOVE Roasted tomatoes!
LlamaMama yours look awesome and now I want to make some....
I have roasted different types of tomatoes in the oven but at a lower temp - 200 degrees for longer time but these were cherry tomatoes. Either way they taste awesome - I always eat a few before I put them into freezer bags and freeze until I use them for sauces.
Enjoy!

The roasting condenses the flavor, adds that spectacular roasted flavor, and it gets sweeter imho. I saw the recipes that roasted at lower temps for longer times too. Decided on the quicker and hotter version in order to be able to turn off the oven sooner, on hot days especially. Now I'm waiting for the next round of green tomatoes to turn red, it seems the extreme heat from weeks ago put a stop to things for awhile. Roasted toms are my new favorite thing.

WOW! what a great and easy recipe. I just roasted 2 sheets of tomatoes, and boy, talk about flavor! I keep picking at them, so don't know how many will end up in sauce/freezer etc! Thanks for the great recipe! Used my neighbors and our tomatoes, our own basil our own garlic too. Super yummy!!

I am DEFINITELY going to try roasting my tomatoes this year! That way I can roast them as they come in rather than waiting to have a large enough collection to justify a batch of sauce for canning. I CAN'T WAIT!!! drooling drooling drooling

Wow, GWN, that is some tomato harvest. You will have a very tempting aroma coming from roasting all of these. I had all I could do to keep my fingers from stealing some while I was getting ready to put them in the blender.

Easiest way I know to preserve them for the winter months.

Wow, the first picture makes me drool. Consider putting it in the gallery!
Question- maybe my eyes are not working right but it looks like the tomato stems are growing outside the arch? So what are they growing in?

the ones on the outside of the arch are growing in Mels Mix, basically a 3ft by 11 ft bed and My Carrot week carrots are in front of them.

This is two other beds with the cattle panels on the outside (NORTH)

perhaps this photo explains it better, the HOOP house oonly covers ONe of the beds, it backs onto the southern bed, it seems that the southern one is the nicest. This is tomato heaven Dsc_0212

Or this one from a few weeks ago, it is all quite a mess

I am roasting tomatoes today. I had always sauteed the tomatoes and froze them as a start to a sauce. I am trying your method today as I love roasted vegetables. Thanks for your post.

Mine are roasting out on the deck and just after I cut up about 10 lbs of tomatoes, basil oregano and garlic (all from garden sunny ) and got this roasting... My husband comes home and says that there is a warning of a VERY BAD storm coming one with heavy hail warning. What a Face

And so I decided to pick all of my ripe tomatoes and even not quite ripe, so just picked 80 lbs of tomatoes and tucked them down into cold room, where in the next few days I am sure that they too will become roasted tomatoes.

I am so excited about this, seems llike about the greatest way ever to preserve tomatoes thanks Llamma mom for this thread clap
