Rather than blanch in hot water I would prefer to do it on the egg.Do you core and X the top of the tomato?What temp and how long?Want to put up and freeze for pizza etc.

    In the past I've done as you describe and just thrown a little olive oil, salt/pepper @ 400 direct. It's okay if the skin burns, cuz you're gonna peel it off anyway. Good luck.

    I have never done this before but I was thinking to core and seed after it was cut in half then chop up some fresh basil with some evoo and spread them out on a perforated pizza pan skin side down and cook for about five minutes or till the skin gets black then remove and cool.Peel and crush upt then into a freezer bag.

    Tomatoes, Dried, Chubby

    Yesterday...I had the most wonderful smelling house...if you're Itallian, or Itallian at heart!!In order to get better flavor from tomatos this time of year I occassionally watch for Roma's (on sale), buy a bunch, and spend a couple days slow roasting/drying them to concentrate the flavors!!Pretty simple..

    1 Slice lengthways....scoop out most of the seeds and juice.
    2 Drizzle with "good" Extra Virgin Olive Oil and Balsamic.
    3 Sprinkle with diced garlic, fresh ground black pepper, grey salt, sweet basil... and thyme.
    4 Slow roast on a cooling rack over a sheet (or jelly roll) pan for 3-4 hours @ 275.
    5 If you have a Convection oven...use it!
    6 Store in the Refrigerator.

    They sure come in handy for salads, pasta dishes, or as a condiment on sandwiches!!

    They're a staple at "Chubby's Crib".. all year round!!
