I'll have to look at that book. i'd love to be able to dehydrate some tomatoes.

Last year i put some of my romas in gallon freeezer bags. they did get a little mush in the freezser, but i used them for making tomato juice/sauce. it also made the skin come off easily.

Has anyone tried pickling cherry tomatoes? Was just wondering if they get mushy over time or not?

emoticon Debbie,
I added it to my favorites so I can show it to DH.
Maybe I can get him or his Dad to make me one :)

Net--Here's a link to the book that has the plans for the one we used. I'm sure you could also find a bunch of plans on the web.

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. emoticon

Thanks in advance!
