    GinaJohnson's Note:

    We love sun-dried tomatoes in lots of things, but they're expensive! And when the garden gave me an abundance of cherry tomatoes, I thought I'd try drying them. They're delicious! This will work with larger tomatoes (Roma are wonderful) as well as grape and cherry tomatoes. Just let dry longer!

    1. 1
      Wash tomatoes, pat dry and cut into pieces. For cherry tomatoes, cut in half; for others, cut into pieces, about 2x1", but this isn't fussy!
    2. 2
      Pat dry with paper towels again.
    3. 3
      Spray large baking tray with vegetable oil.
    4. 4
      If you have a cooling rack, place it on the baking tray and lightly spray it, too. (For very small cherry tomatoes, skip this. They'll just fall through as they dry!).
    5. 5
      Spread tomatoes evenly on rack/tray, trying not to have them touch.
    6. 6
      Place in 170 degree oven and let dry for 5-10 hours.
    7. 7
      OR cover with cheese cloth to keep bugs off and place in a really hot car with the windows up, set in the sun.
    8. 8
      Let tomatoes dry until they're crunchy and look like really dry raisins. Taste them! They should crunch!
    9. 9
      For longer storage, place in a freezer bag and freeze.
    10. 10
      When ready to use, take out what you want and cover with boiling water. Let set for about 20 minute.

      I made this using Roma tomatoes and kosher salt. I accidently used garlic spray but it didn't hurt the flavor at all. I tasted them at various stages of drying and loved them! I put them in small seal-a-meal bags and froze them for later. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC Fall 2011.
