Oven Roasted Tomatoes

I do love my garden tomatoes – there are a ton of uses for them, but near the end of the season, I find myself running out of ways to use them all. I have to get a bit more creative in how I cook with them. Oven roasting them, or oven drying them, is a great way to use them up and enhance that tomato-y flavour.
