"Sun" Dried Tomatoes

Post by Bob K » Mon Aug 26, 2019 15:22

So easy to make and so much better than the store bought. I use a dehydrator but also can be made in an oven. Just add a little salt and an (optional) herb of your choice.

Nice! Looks like they are Roma tomatoes which usually have thicker flesh and probably a higher yield when dried. Have you done other varieties as well?

That's mostly San Marcianos and a few Beefsteaks. And yes the plum tomatoes like Romas and San Marcianos have a higher yield when dried. I give the S Marcianos a definite plus in the flavor department over the Romas. Regular tomatoes like Beefsteaks shrivel up to a much smaller size and don't seem to retain the flavor like the Plum varieties.
