Uses for Wrinkly Tomatoes?

gilmoregalJuly 26, 2012

We have a bumper crop of cherry and Roma tomatoes this year, and I have a large bowl of them on the kitchen counter that have started to get wrinkly. Would love any suggestions of how to use them once they are a little past their prime. Thanks!

Cut in half....drizzle with oil and dry in a 200 oven until they are leathery.
