Tips and Tricks

Choosing Tomatoes

Use ripe, but firm tomatoes for the best results. Roma or plum tomatoes work particularly well for drying due to their lower water content.

Removing Seeds

Gently squeeze the tomatoes to remove as many seeds as possible. If needed, use a small spoon to help scoop out the seeds. This helps speed up the drying process.

Seasoning

Feel free to add other seasonings along with salt for extra flavor. A sprinkle of dried oregano, basil, or garlic powder can enhance the taste of your dried tomatoes.

Baking Process

For even drying, arrange the tomato halves in a single layer on the baking sheet, cut side up. Ensure there is space between each piece to allow air to circulate.

Checking for Doneness

Check the tomatoes periodically after several hours to monitor their progress. They should have a leathery, but pliable texture when done. Smaller pieces will dry faster, so remove them as they are ready.

Storage

Once completely dried and cooled, store the tomatoes in an airtight container in the refrigerator. They can also be stored in the freezer for longer shelf life.

Using Dried Tomatoes

Rehydrate dried tomatoes by soaking them in warm water for about 15-20 minutes before using in recipes. They are great in salads, pastas, sauces, and as a flavorful addition to sandwiches and pizzas.

Quick Tip

If you have a dehydrator, you can use it to dry the tomatoes more efficiently. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for drying tomatoes.

Enhancing Flavor

For a richer taste, drizzle the tomato halves with a bit of olive oil before drying. This adds a subtle richness and helps them retain some moisture.
