  4. Place the baking tray in a preheated oven at 400°F (200°C) for 50 to 60 minutes. After that turn the oven off but leave the tomatoes inside to cool down for another 45 minutes. Keep an eye on them. Cover with a piece of tinfoil in the end if you fear the tomato slices will likely burn. The tomatoes should be very soft, wrinkled and bright red.
