Rosii uscate marinate in ulei de masline/Dried tomatoes marinated in olive oil

Nu stiu daca voua v-a fost dor de mine si de retetele mele. Mie mi-a fost dor si de retete si de cititorii mei 🙂
Asa ca dupa ce am lipsit exact un an si jumatate, cred ca a venit momentul sa va povestesc si sa va arat ce am mai pregatit prin bucatarie.
Fiind toamna m-am gandit sa va povestesc un pic despre ce puteti face cu rosiile gustoase si coapte pe care inca le gasim peste tot.
Am ales mai multe tipuri de rosii si le-am uscat dupa o reteta simpla.

I do not know if you it missed me and my recipes. I certainly missed my recipes and my readers 🙂
So after I missed exactly a year and a half, I think the time has come to tell and show you what I prepared lately in my kitchen.
Being autumn I thought I should tell you a little about what you can do with the tasty and ripe tomatoes that you can still find everywhere.
I chose several types of tomatoes and I dried them after a simple recipe.
– rosii de diverse soiuri
-sare de mare grunjoasa
-ulei de masline
-boabe de piper
-oregano uscat
De data aceasta nu am sa va dau cantitati deoarece nu este necesar.
– different types of tomatoes (heirloom)
-coarse sea salt
-olive oil
-pepper berries
-dried oregano
This time I won’t give you quantities because it’s not necessary.
Am ales rosii care au multa pulpa si mai putine seminte pentru ca in urma uscarii sa ramana totusi ceva mai mult decat pielita.
Am taiat rosiile in bucati mari, de diverse forme. Le-am asezat in tavi acoperite cu hartie de copt cerata. Apoi am sarat fiecare bucata de rosie si am stropit-o cu o picatura de ulei de masline.
I chose tomatoes that have more pulp and rather than seeds so that after drying to remain something more than the skin.
I cut the tomatoes into large pieces of various shapes. I sat them in the baking trays covered with baking wax paper. After that I put on each piece coarse salt and a drop of olive oil.
Am pus tavile cu rosii in cuptorul preincalzit la 150 grade Celsius. Daca aveti cuptor cu ventilatie este bine sa o folositi. Iar daca nu, setati cuptorul la treapta medie si lasati usa intredeschisa.
Rosiile mele s-au uscat in cca 5 ore. Timpul de uscare depinde si de cum vreti voi sa fie-mai uscate sau mai suculente.
In put the trays in the preheated oven at 150 Celsius degrees. If you have oven with ventilation it would be good to use it. If not, just set the oven at a medium temperature and leave the door slightly opened.
My tomatoes were dried after about 5 hours. Drying time depends on you and how dry or moist you would like them to be.
Rosiile uscate se marineaza in ulei de masline cu usturoi si condimente. In comert gasiti si varianta cu seminte de pin. Eu le-am aranjat frumos in borcane impreuna cu boabe de piper, usturoi si oregano uscat. Dupa fiecare strat de rosii si condimente am pus ulei de masline si m-am asigurat ca nu a ramas aer. Astfel marinarea se face corect si nu va aparea fermentatie sau mucegai.
Dried tomatoes are marinated in olive oil with garlic and spices. In stores you can find also dried tomatoes with pine seeds. I put the tomatoes in jars with the pepper berries, garlic and dried oregano. After each layer of tomatoes and spices I put olive oil and I was attentive not to leave any air in the jar. This way the tomatoes will be marinated correctly and the fermentation and mold won’t appear.
Se strang bine capacele borcanelor si se asaza intr-un vas pe fundul careia am pus hartie. Am adaugat apa astfel incat sa acopere ceva mai mult de jumatate din borcan si le-am sterilizat timp de 20 de minute din momentul in care apa a inceput sa fiarba.
Tighten the jars’ lids and place them in a bowl with some paper on bottom. I added water so that it covered little more than half of the jar and sterilized them for 20 minutes since the water began to boil.
 Rosiile uscate se folosesc la prepararea retetelor mediteraneene (supe, peste in diverse combinatii, paste,etc), salatelor, painii,sandvisurilor si a diverselor aperitive.
You can use dried tomatoes when you prepare Mediterranean recipes (soups, fish in various combinations, pasta, etc), salads, bread, sandwiches and various appetizers.  

 Pe langa gustul grozav pe care-l veti obtine preparand acasa rosiile uscate in ulei de masline, veti face si economie. Rosiile uscate nu sunt printre cele mai ieftine produse din magazine.
Asa ca sa ne apucam de treaba!
Besides the great taste that you’ll obtain at home preparing your own dried tomatoes in olive oil, you will make some economies also. Dried tomatoes are not among the cheapest products in stores. 
So let’s get started!
