Oven roasted tomatoes are so delicious that we don't buy canned tomatoes unless absolutely necessary. Aside from the taste, doing them ourselves is also much more economical. Throughout the summer, tomatoes come on the scene and are much cheaper than in the winter. This is the time that I stock up, roast and freeze them. I usually portion them out in the same sizes as the cans I would buy in the grocery store. These lovely, flavourful tomatoes get used in any recipe that calls for diced or crushed tomatoes. If you have never tried it yourself, give it a go. You will be glad you did. Although fresh basil is best, you can easily use dried (use approximately 1 1/2 Teaspoons).
