Sun-dried (dehydrated)Tomatoes 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.
