Tomato season is over for us here in Colorado but who can resist sun dried tomatoes on a nice salad, in pasta, or on top of pizza? I LOVE to through these gems in recipes. They can be quite pricey at natural/health stores but they are surprisingly easy to make at home. If you have any tomatoes left from the garden, here is a great use for them. If not, buy a few at the grocery store and make up a batch.
This recipe from Get Cooking America is easy to follow. All you need is time. A lot of it. Not a lot of work, but it does call for 6-8 hours in your oven so make sure it's a cool day so your house doesn't get to hot!
They shrink a LOT. Don't be fooled like I was and try to get away with fewer tomatoes!
Yum! Keep them in your fridge for up to 3 weeks or store them in your freezer for up to 8 months! Enjoy!
