Extra! Extra? Tomatoes!
I actually have the WORST garden of all time this year... so instead of figuring out what to do with all the extra extra, I had to choose which things did I want in the pantry MOST...
this was it
which is funny because...
it's an accidental favorite
drying tomatoes was something I did one year because I had so many, I was tired of all the things I had already made
so I sliced and tossed in the dehydrator… and walked away
easiest food preservation EVER
comically, they became a favorite all year long
I dry them seeds & skins & all… and do NOT add any seasoning
then store in a jar or bag
you COULD pre-grind and then store, but for the sake of not dealing with clumping, I grind as needed
I grind to a fine powder & add to
• salad dressing vinaigrette
• herbed butter
• tomato swirl bread

it’s a little bit of summer GOLD magic in a jar
