Preserve the Harvest with Semi-Dried Tomatoes

When I was in Australia visiting family and researching, I learned about this easy technique. It was one of the ways the locals preserved the abundance of tomatoes that came in the fall. This method works great with smaller tomatoes such as Cherry, Roma, or other small heirloom types. This year we grew pretty much only tomatoes and herbs, so when harvest time approaches, I gear up for processing my vegetables as they come into ripeness.

A batch at a time

The nice thing about this method is that you don't have to do a large amount if you are short on time or space, you can dry one pan at a time. I like to use them in salads, you can process them and use them as a sauce for pasta or pizza, or eat them as a spread chopped up with olives.
