You are going to love these candy-like tomatoes!

So quick and easy to make! You will save yourself money because you won't have to buy expensive sun-dried tomatoes any longer!

Plus you'll feel so good knowing you did it yourself!

For the how-to go to

Nest
our little urban homestead on the prairie!
cut tomatoes in quarters, remove seeds drizzle with olive oil and salt bake @ 140-150F for 10-26 hours depending on the weather. it must be dry but still pliable.
To store your tomatoes, let them cool completely, then put them in ziplock bags or glass jars with an airtight lid. They will keep this way for up to 6 months.
To rehydrate your tomatoes if need be, soak them for 5 to 10 minutes in hot water, broth, or wine to cover.

alternatively, you can sun dry it for 3-4 days during the summer months. skip the oil but you should still salt them. cover and put them indoors during night time.
So will this work for green tomatoes also ???
