If you ask me, it’s never a bad idea to keep some sun dried tomatoes in the house.
An easy and elegant way to add more oomph to almost every dish, sun dried tomatoes (whether homemade or from the supermarket or farmer’s market) are a food staple in Italy, where they show up in everything from pasta dishes and salads to richly grained breads.
Fresh and jarred sun dried tomatoes can be found in your local supermarket or farmer’s market, but it’s not hard to make your own. You can dry your own tomatoes in the sun, or you can make your own homemade sun dried tomatoes in the oven, or in a food dehydrator.
Below are 5 delicious recipes that will help you make the most of these ruby red gems.
