By April 29, 2010Storage

Tired of saucing or freezing your extra tomatoes?  Here’s a simply delicious way to store your garden fresh tomatoes:

  1. Slice tomatoes into wedges.  Load tomato wedges onto a dehydrator, filling up all available space.  Dry.  (Optional: Add spices to taste. )
  2. Pour distilled vinegar into a bowl.  Screen by screen, gather dried tomatoes, lightly toss in vinegar before placing them into your storage jar. (note: Jar will not be processed.)
  3. Once jar is full, add oil to cover.  Store in a cool, dry place.  Tomatoes will soften over time and become tantalizingly good.
  4. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • Tomatoes
  • Vinegar
  • Oil
