dried tomatoes in olive oil...

The garden here is done for the year, but I found some nice tomatoes cheap at the produce store recently. I decided to dry them in my food dehydrator {a Nesco American Harvest)...

According to the user/recipe guide that came with it, the Dried Tomatoes in Olive Oil "taste better than the expensive 'sun-dried' ones at the supermarket"...I had to try it.

Here's what I did:

After the tomato slices are dehydrated, dip the slices in white wine vinegar, shake off excess, and place them in a pint jar. Then, cover them with extra light olive oil. These need to set 1 month before using, and can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 6 months.

Mid-November I will let you know how they are.

    I've done something similar by drying them in the oven on low heat tossed with olive oil and spices, then storing them in small portions in the freezer in zip baggies -- to use, I reconstitute in hot water - they are far superior to store sun dried tomatoes, and much cheaper!

  23. Oh my goodness! Just read about your pizzas and had to find out how you made the tomatoes! I just got a dehydrator for Christmas and I can't wait to try this! Thanks for sharing!

  24. I know this is an older post, but it happened to catch my eye as I was browsing your blog.  Did the recipe ever work out?  Just wondering because it sounds like a good thing to do for the coming winter.

  25. They came out just wonderfully-they have a great intense flavor! I can't wait to make some more this summer; one of my favorite ways to use them is on pizza instead of sauce.
