Oven Roasted Tomatoes
  1. If you live in an area like us where you can't get a can of oven roasted tomatoes, or if you just feel like making them fresh. Here's how to make them.
  2. Preheat your oven to broil. Wash the tomatoes and cut in half top to bottom. Trim off any bad parts of the tomato.
  3. Over a bowl, lightly squeeze the tomatoes so some of the juice and seeds come out. Be careful not to squeeze too hard, we don't want everything out.
  4. Line a cookie sheet with aluminum foil, and place the tomatoes cut-side down on the cookie sheet.
  5. Place the cookie sheet in your oven and let broil for 15-20 minutes. Be sure to keep an eye on the tomatoes so they don’t burn. You want a few brown/black spots as that will add some nice flavor, but you don’t want the whole thing to turn black.
  6. When done, remove the cookie sheet from oven and place a clean towel over the tomatoes. This will help steam the tomatoes and make them easier to peel. In about 5 - 10 minutes the tomatoes will be cool enough to peel
  7. Once you can handle the tomatoes, start peeling the skin off. They should come off fairly easily.
  8. Once peeled, put them in a bowl and drain them and they are ready to use.
