Dehydrating your cherry tomatoes is so simple to do. Follow these few and easy steps to have to the best topping for salads, snack, or add to your food stockpile.
Dehydrated foods are amazing to have in your pantry or stockpile. If done properly, dehydrated food will keep for one to two years. The great thing about this method is the food keeps all the nutritional value even after the dehydration process. Essentially, you are just shrinking down the food, making it easier to store.
A dehydrator is a great investment. You can dehydrate just about any type of whole food. Fruit, vegetables, herbs, meat, you name it! They aren’t hard to use, and they don’t heat up your house while using them.
Some other dehydrator recipes you should try are these Dehydrated Zesty Ranch Zucchini Chips. They are incredibly tasty and a great alternative to store bought chips. I also have a recipe on How to Dehydrate Strawberries. It is just as easy as this one. Once you start dehydrator some foods, you will be hooked!
You can add these to your pasta dishes or soups and reconstitute them. They will have that same garden-fresh taste that everyone loves. These would be great added to this Roasted Cherry Tomato Sauce to add some tomato chunks to it. The number of recipes these could be added to are endless. Let me know in the comments your favorite way to enjoy these!
