When faced with so many Tomatoes to preserve I have to say that I am very excited about the "Sun Dried" Dehydrator tomatoes. I put them on a salad, on top of a cold soup, on top of Pizza, and I am told they make a wonderful addition to Pastas and Vegetable dishes. I can't wait to try them all!l
The taste of these tomatoes is really amazing, sweet and rich. The other great thing about them is that you can grind them in your blender to a powder and use the tomato powder in soups and sauces. I haven't done that yet but I like to try things so it is on my agenda to put the tomato powder in some of my homemade seasonings.
The other really wonderful thing about these tomatoes is that storage takes up such little space! Freezing and Canning take up space and take a lot of energy. The dehydrator is very cost efficient which is important to me. I have also tried dehydrating zucchinis for chips, apples, onions, green beans, and other fruits and vegetables. I love that it is very easy to do too! I love my new dehydrator and learning to preserve food naturally in this way. Delicious, Healthy, and Efficient!
