How does one make 'semi dried tomatoes' at home?

Bought some of these from O & co and I'm now addicted! Would love any advice, tips & techniques please! Thanks.

Here's the source I've been using, very successfully. I put them in late at night and by early morning the whole house is tomato-fragrant. You can see my comment way down on the page, and some interesting conversation about making peppers the same way, both sweet and hot.

Use her search for updates in successive summers.
And Panfusine, I imagine your house is fragrant all the time!

Stop robbing those tomatoes!

that would of course be RUB with olive oil...

I'd halve, rob with olive oil, put them in a 200 degree oven overnight.

I wasn't sure what semi dried tomatoes were so I googled and came across this step by step technique, maybe this will help or someone here who has done this will respond.
