      Been wanting to buy a food dehydrator for a long time. Finally did so. Can't wait to start using it to make some of these recipes.

      I love the tomatoes I grow in the summer but they can over take you when the start coming off good this is a great idea to use the leftovers and to have summer flavors all winter long

      What a great tip! I have hated tomatoes my whole life (im 50) but recently discovered I LOVE sun dried tomatoes. I dehydrated a case last month and packed 2 jars in grapeseed oil and froze the rest in a ziplock bag.
      I'm experimenting now with other flavors like cream cheese and tomato paste topped with sundried tomatoes - YUMMY!
      Next I'm going to make tomato butter.
      I hate to think of all the beautiful tomatoes Ive past up in my life when I could of dehydrated them lol

      Hubby surprised me a couple of days ago with 15 pounds of huge, fully ripe tomatoes that he got at the farm stand for only $5 because each one had a small blemish. I have turned them into a full pint of tomato powder, and will take a sample to the woman who owns the farm stand. We get beautiful tomatoes year-round here in Florida, and it is wonderful to have this way to preserve them. I make a lot of soup, so it will not last an awfully long time, and I can buy large quantities as often as I wish. I even turn leftover spaghetti sauce into tomato leather and store it in vacuum packed jars or bags. I hate waste!
