3.  Drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with salt pepper and fresh herbs.                                                                4.  Bake for one to two hours checking every half hour until pieces have shrunk slightly, edges are shriveled and juices no longer run.  They are not completely dried but are still juicy.
