to roast tomatoes in your oven
You can easily
roast canned tomatoes right in your oven, which is great for
making things like spaghetti sauce, lasagna, chilli and even
tomato soup. This means you can have fresh tasting roasted
tomatoes anytime of the year, not just when tomatoes are in
First you need
two 28-oz cans of whole tomatoes, making sure they are packed
in juice and not any kind of sauce or seasoning. Drain the
cans of tomatoes, and then you will need to seed them. To
remove seeds from whole tomatoes, gently opened the tomatoes
over a bowl or sink, and use your fingers to gently pushed
the seeds out.
Line a rimmed baking
sheet with tinfoil pans placing the seedless tomatoes in a
single layer onto the sheets. Lightly sprinkle the tomatoes
with brown sugar, using between one to 2 teaspoons for the
entire sheet of tomatoes. Place the tomatoes in the oven with
the upper-middle rack position in a preheated 450° oven.
Roast the tomatoes
for about 30 minutes, they will be done when the liquid has
evaporated and the tomatoes began to take on a roasted appearance.
Remove the baking sheet from the oven, and allow the tomatoes
to rest and until the tomatoes lift off the tinfoil easily.
They will be very difficult to remove immediately upon removing
from the oven.
