Sun Dried Tomatoes

Post  newbeone on 6/8/2017, 6:43 pm

Well actually dehydrated, I normally use a solar dehydrator that I built but it's not worth pulling it out for a small batch so the other day I was snooping around in one of the local thrift stores when I spotted a small Ronco five tray dehydrator still in the box and the box looked new well for under $4. it came home with me. The tomatoes were coming fast keeping me and my neighbors supplied so I took it for a test drive worked great in about 18 hours I now I have Three trays of dried tomatoes I like them as a snack on while watching TV at night.

This is the one I have had for many years! The price was right, to be sure.

I got myself a true bargain the other day. My son was bringing his dehydrator to the Salvation Army since he no longer makes beef jerky. He's on a health kick.
Anyway, I got mine for free and intend to use it this year. It worked great for jerky so it must be good for tomatoes.

Beautiful! Thanks for posting it.

QB, good for you for taking son's dehydrator off his hands.
