... is simply a fancy word for dehydrated tomatoes - one of the easiest fruits to dry! Plum tomatoes work the best, since they're not as juicy as other varieties.
I simply sliced the tomatoes in half, placed them on trays, and dehydrated until they were leathery. Talk about saving money - sun-dried tomatoes packed in olive oil and herbs are so pricey in the store, probably because most people don't realize what a rip off they are! I'll store these dry in jars for now (they keep better that way), then rehydrate them and add olive oil and seasonings when I'm ready to use them. Yumm!
