I dry cherry tomatoes with very good results, but I use a solar dryer and I live in the desert. I wash them, but them in half, lay them on the screen and put them in the dryer. I take them out when they feel leathery, the time it takes depends on how hot and sunny it is. I would suggest that you store the dried tomatoes in the freezer, just in case they aren't completely dry.
Has anyone done sun-dried tomatoes? What kind of results have you had? DH would like to do this with our cherry tomatoes this year, and I am looking for reputable recipes and storage instructions. We do not own a dehydrator, so it would have to actually be "sun-dried." Or oven dried, I guess.
Thanks in advance!
