and try to find the ones that say, Extra Moist. They require little reconstituting.

I do one of three things: I either throw a handful into a salad, or eat them plain out the bag, or add some to my eggbeater omelete.

emoticon Thanks, Jazzy. I'm very glad to know that I can reconstitute in water, oil, or not. I believe the way I've eaten them in the was were NOT reconstituted. So I think I'll try them reconstituted first. Thanks for the recipe links!

Usually you reconstitute the tomatoes in boiling water but some recipes will call for you to use them as is (like dried fruit). I most recently used them in a winter tomato soup and mixed them with roasted tomatoes... the depth of flavor was incredible.

Here is a recipe for salmon with a sun dried tomato sauce although I am sure you could use it on any protein of your choice. homecooking.about.com/od/seafoodrec

or here is a recipe for hummus homecooking.about.com/od/appetizerre

But there are recipes out there and they don't all call for the oil packed tomatoes.

I have a bag of sundried tomatoes. No directions, No recipes. I went searching for recipes and only found things to do with sundried tomatoes that come packed in olive oil in a jar. I suppose I could do that with these. And then what do you do with them whether you reconstitute them or not. I have tried processed foods that had sun-dried tomato bits in them and found them to be very strong. That doesn't mean much because it was back when I was eating in a VERY unhealthy way.

There was nothing on the package to let me know the method they used for sun-drying. I'll hope for the best: just tomatoes and sun.

So my questions, for those of you with experience, are

1. What do you do with dried sundried tomatoes?
2. What are your favorite recipes for using them?
