    Chef Joey Z.'s Note:

    My DH spent time over the summer and this past weekend helping out the good folks at Ironwood Farm here in Albuquerque. They were harvesting and gave my DH a ton of produce to take home. Since I had a full bag of paste tomatoes and knew we'd never eat them all I decided to dry them. It took a while to do this but it was worth it as we now have a huge jar of dried tomatoes which will probably last a very long time. You can salt the tomatoes if you want and add the herbs but I left them plain.

    My Private Note




    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Slice your paste tomatoes 1/4 inch thick.
    2. 2
      Slice as many tomatoes as you need to fill the dehydrator.
    3. 3
      You will probably have to do this in more then one batch depending on the size of your dehydrator.
    4. 4
      I have a 5 drawer Excalibur Dehydrator that can hold around 35 tomatoes in one drying.
    5. 5
      Set the dehydrator to 110'F and dry for 15 hours.
    6. 6
      When done let them sit on a cookie sheet for a few hours.
    7. 7
      Use in all sorts of receipes of your choice.
    8. 8
      Put in a glass jar and store in a dark dry place.
    9. 9
      Bon Appetit!

      Did a small batch of a dozen or so tomatoes for a recipe. Turned out great. I'm thinking I can buy a case of tomatoes (I'm a city girl with a country heart) and get serious! One thing I love about dehydrating is that you can have it run overnight. Look, Ma, I'm multi-tasking in my sleep! Thank you Chef Joey Z for posting!

      YUM!!! I LOVE MY DE-HIGH-GREATER!!!! I did on a much smaller scale in my much smaller dehydrator...but same delish results...:) I can eat these like a P-I-PIGGY eating chips :) ...used my garden tomatoes and so so so good...I put some salt and hot pepper on some ...but Mr. free-free likes them plain so I stuck with that mostly to not be completely self absorbed as I often tend to be...:) thanks for sharing the goal in life is to get a dehydrator like yours Chef Joey Z...[lol]
