We had started stockpiling tomatoes on our counter…between our CSA box, friends and sweet patients who brought us tomatoes we had a TON. So it was time to do make some delicious sun-dried tomatoes! I made these last year and ended up just eating them straight instead of using them in recipes because they were so delicious. Some how I lost my recipe, so my mama inspired what I did to these little guys-thanks mom!
Sun Dried Tomatoes
A bunch of tomatoes, seeds removed as best as possible
Cut the tomatoes in half and squeeze out the seeds, then slice very thin (It helps if you a have a mandoline). Spread them out on dehydrator* tray and brush with olive oil. Then sprinkle with s&p, oregano and basil. I set the dehydrator to 115 and kept them in overnight. My house smelled like an Italian kitchen when I woke up! Yum!
*My mom doesn’t have a dehydrator so she lined a cookie sheet with parchment paper and baked at 200 for a few hours, flipping tomatoes as needed.
