How to Sun Dry Tomatoes

Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Wash and stem tomatoes. Slice horizontally about 1/4-inch thick. If desired, salt on both sides, allow to sit for 30 minutes, then rinse. Lay on mesh or foil-covered baking sheets. Cover lightly with cheesecloth. Place in the hot sun for several hours, turning occasionally, until desired dryness is achieved. Store in jars in a cool place.

Make marinated sun-dried tomatoes by placing tomatoes in jars with olive oil, garlic and herbs; refrigerate immediately at 40 degrees F or below.

Note: Be sure you sun-dry your tomatoes on a day when the humidity is low.
