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!
Mustard de Provence: creamy spicy with sun-dried tomato; Preserved Lemon with garlic. Both super duper easy, and this includes advice for the basic soak and grind technique. The possibilities are endless.
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.
Savory Oven Dried Tomatoes are unlike the brittle sun-dried tomatoes found in stores. They are dehydrated only to the point that their juices intensify and the flesh develops a slight chewiness. You will find endless uses for these tasty morsels!
