Sun-Dried Tomato Halves

Sun-dried tomatoes bring the summer taste of fresh tomatoes to your kitchen any time of year! Chop and toss into salads, stews, soups, and pastas for a chewy bite of fresh tomato flavor, or rehydrate and blitz into salad dressings, oils, sauces, and more.  Let the sunlight in!

Prep:
Rinse sun-dried tomatoes in plenty of cold water, draining well and letting them air dry.

Rehydrate:
Pour hot water over sun-dried tomatoes and steep for up to half an hour or until soft and supple. Steeping times will vary by variety and size.  On average, one half ounce of sun-dried tomatoes reconstitutes into two ounces of hydrated tomatoes.

Storage:
To keep sun-dried tomatoes fresh, store them in an airtight container in the pantry, or for longer lasting shelf-life, in the freezer.
