How To Make Sun Dried Tomatoes

Traditionally sun dried tomatoes were made by laying out freshly cut pieces of the fruit in the sun to bake in the natural heat for days (the pieces were first covered in cheesecloth). Nowadays, we use the oven. In just a few hours, you can have bags to freeze or jars full packed in olive oil. Use in pastas, on top of pizzas, in sauces, etc.

BowlIf you have a bumper crop from the garden, dehydrating/drying them in the oven is a great way to preserve them for future use.
