Recipe by Sweetiebarbara

These are great gifts. This is what I do with "last year's" Sun-Dried Tomatoes, when I get ready to pick and put up this year's crop. Make sure you do not pack them too tightly. We eat them as is or use them in various recipes.

Thank you and thank you again! A heck of a lot cheaper to make than to purchase those little spendy jars. I purchase sun-dried tomatoes in bulk and that saves even more money. However, I omitted the rosemary because I wanted "generic" oil-packed toms suitable for any recipe. PS> Use good quality expeller-pressed olive extra virgin oil;-not the "lite" stuff. cg
