As you already know, I absolutely LOVE my Excalibur Dehydrator! Well, with all of those wonderful tomatoes that I had, I decided to try some “sun-dried” (aka dehydrated) tomatoes. As a FRESH tomato lover, I have to say, “OH MY GOODNESS are they Delicious!!!” Dehydrating them brings out the natural sweetness in them plus enhances that tomato flavor! In fact, I love it so much, that I now have a whole gallon jar filled to the brim, just waiting for me to savor them this winter.
These will be delicious in dishes, but also just as a snack! It was suggested that you could add extra virgin olive oil and salt/pepper to the slices before dehydrating, but I just dehydrated them as they were. They really don’t need anything! The flavor is wonderfully refreshing. But, I might try a few different ones later on just to see what they taste like. I’m sure they will be delicious, too.
Oh, what a wonderful time we live in where it’s so easy to preserve foods for the long winter months ahead. We will be eating well, that’s for sure! I’m thankful to God daily for all that He is providing for us, and I’m trying my best to not let any go to waste.
