I was on a sundried tomato kick until I realized I was spending $5 a jar. Yikes. Without a food dehydrator, I thought I was out of luck when it came to making my own. Boy, was I wrong. I made these "sun"-dried tomatoes in the oven in 15 minutes!
Drying tomatoes is a great way to preserve them, especially if you’re running out of shelf-space. You can use them in sauces, salads, stews, soups, pastas, you name it! We also like to eat them as is, just like you would a dried peach.
When the hubby and I gleaned buckets of food not too long ago, I immediately knew I’d be dehydrating some of it. Turns out that I dehydrated most of it and have discovered many great uses for dried foods.
