Sun-dried Tomatoes II

Rated as 5 out of 5 Stars

"Cherry tomatoes are easily dried in a food dehydrator. When I make soup or stew I throw in a handful, and they taste like they were just picked. You could also rehydrate them in warm water for some other use."

Very good, fast & easy. Can't be easier or a better way of saving some cherry tomatoes. We have them coming like wildfire in the garden. Used a dehydrator and did one layer to be sure, and ad...
