I was inspired to make some sundried tomatoes from the tomatoes in my little kitchen garden. Sundried tomatoes can be used in pastas, sandwiches & soups.
You will need 2-3 lbs of tomatoes, some olive oil, salt & 2-3tsp of mixed italian (dried) herbs.
Slice the tomatoes after discarding the ends. Brush with some olive oil & sprinkle with salt & herbs.
Spread them in a single layer on a flat tray/plate.
Sun dry them for 5-7 days depending on the weather.
Store the completely dried tomatoes in an airtight container.
Use in pasta's & sandwiches.
