Marinated Sun-Dried Tomatoes

"The tomatoes will become slightly stronger with refrigeration time, yield is only estimated. If you prefer to use fresh herbs, then use 2-1/2 tablespoons of fresh in place of dry."

    I used these in a seitan Italian sausage with great results! This recipe is far superior than the jarred marinated tomatoes that I have purchased in the past.

    Never had marinated sun dried tomatoes before, but these worked out pretty well in the recipe I needed them for. Easy to do, and much cheaper then buying them (since i dry my own tomatoes) Thanks Kitten!

    Yummers. Sun-dried tomatos are one of my faves, so I'm thrilled to have this recipe. I used fresh basil, and bottled minced garlic. Munched on most of them, so I'll be making a double batch soon to use on pizza & crostini. If I can keep my hands off the jar long enough.

    Kittencal, you've done it again. These were great. Okay, so I'm the only that ate them and yes I ate the whole bowl. I love tomatoes. I used store bought dried tomatoes. I can't wait to try these with my own homegrown tomatoes this summer. I'm sure they will be amazing!
