All About Low Salt Sun Dried Tomatoes

Low salt, all-natural, sulfite-free, what more can you ask for? Sun dried tomatoes possess all these desirable qualities. Picked when fully ripened these tomatoes are full of flavor and goodness. Careful sorting and washing make them perfect candidates for the slow drying process which extracts all the water leaving behind the dried tomatoes which are filled with flavor.

Some dried tomatoes have added sulfur dioxide for color preservation. Sun-dried tomatoes without sulfur dioxide are generally a little darker in color. Be sure to store the tomatoes in the refrigerator or freezer for maximum flavor and to preserve the natural color.

Sun dried tomatoes can also be used to make a ground powder which carries all the depth of flavor and nutritional benefits of the dried fruits, and offers a different taste than "regular" dried tomato powder.
