Tomato Powder - Dehydrator

Tomato Powder - Dehydrator created by Axe1678

This stuff is great for adding a little zip to your soups, sauces and stews. Blend it in sour cream or yogurt for a tomato(y) dip. It's a great way to use up your tomatoes. The thinner you slice the tomatoes, the faster they will dry.

ingredients

  • 5 lbs tomatoes (approx)
  • cooking spray (optional)

directions

  • Wash and core the tomatoes.
  • Slice them very thin. approximately 1/8" or less.
  • I don't drain the tomatoes of their seeds and liquid as I want as much flavor as I can get. This of course is optional.
  • Place on screened trays for your dehydrator. If you don't have screens you can place them on parchment paper. You can spray a very fine mist of cooking spray or oil on your trays to keep the tomatoes from sticking, however, I rarely do this.
  • Dehydrate at 150F or whatever your highest setting is. Remember, we are going to dry these to a crisp!
  • After about 3-4 hours open your dehydrator and loosen the slices and flip them over. This will keep them from solidly sticking to the screens or parchment.
  • Continue to dehydrate until slices are completely dehydrated, dry and crisp.
  • Remove and place in blender. (I use a Magic Bullet for this and it works great).
  • Blend to a fine powder and store in a jar or zip lock bag.
  • Enjoy!

    Easy and very good tasting! I had so many tomatoes this season, after canning all I wanted I needed to figure out what to do with the rest, and this works excellent! Taste is great. I did cut mine a little to thick so it took extra time to dry, but so worth it! Thanks.
