"This stuff is great for adding a little zip to your soups, sauces and stews. Blend it in sour cream or yogurt for a tomato(y) dip. It's a great way to use up your tomatoes. The thinner you slice the tomatoes, the faster they will dry. Makes 1 cup."

Step 1

Wash and core the tomatoes.

Step 2

Slice them very thin. approximately 1/8" or less.

Step 3

I don't drain the tomatoes of their seeds and liquid as I want as much flavor as I can get. This of course is optional

Step 4

Place on screened trays for your dehydrator. If you don't have screens you can place them on parchment paper. You can spray a very fine mist of cooking spray or oil on your trays to keep the tomatoes from sticking, however, I rarely do this

Step 5

Dehydrate at 150F or whatever your highest setting is. Remember, we are going to dry these to a crisp!

Step 6

After about 3-4 hours open your dehydrator and loosen the slices and flip them over. This will keep them from solidly sticking to the screens or parchment.

Step 7

Continue to dehydrate until slices are completely dehydrated, dry and crisp

Step 8

Remove and place in blender. (I use a Magic Bullet for this and it works great)

Step 9

Blend to a fine powder and store in a jar or zip lock bag

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.

This is a great recipe. I had so many tomatoes and needed to do something with them before they went bad. I have many uses for this, soups, dips, stews and so much more.
