    Carol Dee, What you have done is wonderful. These look so good. I have never used dried tomatoes but will do this next year.

    I can whole tomatoes, spaghetti and mexican sauce, and salsa and paste. I have none frozen. I have 5 dehydrators so I can do lots of tomatoes at one time. Thank you all for contributions here. I have benefitted greatly.

    @Carlo Dee , you can 'test' to see if they are dry enough by turning the jar upside down for a day. Any condensation at all in the jar and they could use a bit longer in the dehydrator.

    I dry cherry tomatoes cut into quarters - they're already the perfect size to add to stuff. :)

    two more dehydrators full, all done and fit in 4 quart zip bags! So I now have about 7 quarts of dry tomatoes plus what is in the freezer. We should be set for winter.

    I gleaned the garden the other day and decided to dehydrate the tomatillos and the rest of the peppers. They will sit for a day or so and then I'll vacuum seal into smaller bags.

    Just realized I liked a 2 year old post, but that’s a lot of dehydrating.

    nothing wrong with that! it's nice to know you've been read/heard even if it is some time later. plus it may spark an interesting conversation or make me aware of some other interesting thread from the past... :)

    Carol, what did you do with your dehydrated tomatoes? I didn't get any done this year, it was an off year for tomatoes, but I have a few jars left from last year. We love them in salads in the winter. I cannot and will not eat a store bought tomato. :tongue
