Sun-dried Tomatoes

Since I had started a garden I ended up with an excess amount of tomatoes! I decided to try making my own sun dried tomatoes. I can not believe how tasty these are when you make them at home!!
Slice tomatoes 1/4″ thick
Spray a VERY light layer of coconut oil spray on baking sheet.
Lay tomatoes on sheet and salt lightly with pink Himalayan sea salt.
Place out in sun.
I did not need to cover mine up as in our area there are not flies or bugs that are attracted to these. If you need layer a light fine mesh over tray.
Depending on heat and sunshine these will be dried in 1- 3 days. (could be slightly longer in your area) We had 110* heat last week and mine were ready in 36 hours but this week being just under 100* they took just over 48 hours.
Once dry pack into a jar and cover with high quality olive oil.
These are shelf stable and perfect for salads, pasta or eating their own.
 
ENJOY!
