All summer long I should have been making sun dried or dehydrated tomatoes and other produce. But I just thought about it this week. It's amazing how much moisture is removed by drying. I'm using roma tomatoes because they contain less moisture than most other tomato varieties. I slice the tomatoes very thin and put them in the dehydrator till completely dry. When I lived in California I dried tomatoes in the sun on screens. At the time I was amazed no insects seemed to get on the tomatoes while they were drying.
I have an electric dehydrator which I tried to sell at the flea market last year but no one wanted to pay me beans for it so I decided to keep it. Now I'm glad I did. These and other dried produce will be healthful snacks during the winter. They can also be re-hydrated and used in recipes. Maybe this week I'll try drying some apples. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
