Product Description

These soft, pliant slices of summer sunshine are ready when you are.  The flavor is concentrated allowing them to add a new dimension to the taste of the dishes they are added to.  They may be used in any recipe calling for fresh tomato.

A general rule of thumb in using this dried product is a ratio of 1 part dried tomato to 2 parts water for every 3 parts fresh tomato called for in the recipe.  Example:  For 1 cup fresh tomato, use 1/3 cup dried, sliced tomato soaked in 2/3 cup water.  Include any soaking liquid in the recipe.  It holds a lot of flavor.

You may use water, wine or broth to reconstitute these tomatoes.  Use right away after rehydration; but, if you must wait until a later time, store them, covered, in the refrigerator for up to one week.

Store the dried tomatoes in your pantry away from light and heat in a tightly-sealed container or the bag they came in.  Depending on the climatic conditions of your area, shelf life will be anywhere from 1-2 years.
