Sun-dried Tomatoes I
September 24, 2009

I got great results with a combination of Roma and smaller, 8 oz. round tomatoes. My cookie sheets don't have a non-stick coating, so I used parchment paper which worked well. Smaller pieces were dried after 4 hours and larger pieces were done by 7.5 hours. Be sure to check on these every 30-45 min. towards the end and remove them when they are still leather-like and pliable. If they lose their deep red color and get crispy, they have dried too long. I plan to freeze the extras: some just as they are and others in a plastic zip bag with a small amount of olive oil to use later. Be sure to use only good tomatoes...I tried drying some that were past their prime (a little mushy inside) and they were not worth keeping.
