Sun-dried tomatoes are fabulous, they are great for sandwiches, adding some flavor to a dish such as macaroni salad or for just plain snacking.
When I pick through the garden, any tomatoes that are not table worthy, such as splits or it may have been damaged by a bird, fell off the vine, uneven ripeness etc...,It will find it's way to the dehydrator.
- Tomatoes are washed, chopped up and placed on the dehydrator.
- Fresh herbs from the garden are chopped, Sage, Basil, Oregano.
- Tomatoes are placed on the dehydrator and seasoned with the herbs and a pinch of salt.
- Once they are leathery, they are removed, sealed and placed in the refrigerator.
