Sun-Dried Tomatoes Julienne

Sun-dried tomatoes bring the summer taste of fresh tomatoes to your kitchen any time of year! Already julienned, these ruby darlings can be tossed directly into salads, stews, soups, and pastas

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

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.

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