I am SO so glad I kept the thing. It was a cinch to use, and my results - fantastic. I just had to layer the tomatoes in grates, and turn it on. I had mine on for about 9 hours. I had also put in some apples because that is another thing I bought way too much of at the orchard last week. These also came out super good. It is going to be the perfect car snack for my long trip up North this weekend.
So now I am a little addicted. I keep looking through my house looking for things to dehydrate. I have some more apples going right now, and a banana just to see how that turns out.
As for my sundried tomatoes - they are marinating in some extra virgin olive oil, red wine vinegar, some herbs, and salt and pepper. I am so excited to use them either on pizza, in pesto, or just out of the jar and put on some crusty bread. Then I get to use that infused olive oil mixture for whatever I want. What a beautiful thing!
|My apples and tomatoes - lots more tomatoes in the under layers!|
|I love the stars inside of apples. I used my pastry tip to cut them out of the apples|
|The massive dehydrator - totally worth the space|
|They are a little brown, but they taste great and I don't mind it. Some lemon juice might solve that.|
|Some tomatoes in my olive oil mixture. Oh. So. Good.|
About 1 cup sundried (dehydrated) tomatoes, enough to fill jar UN-packed
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Red Wine vinegar
1/2 tsp each dried oregano, basil, rosemary, parsley and salt
Place all ingredients in a jar - filling it about 3/4 the way with the olive oil and the rest of the way with vinegar along with the herbs. Let sit in the fridge to marinate. Enjoy in every way possible.
