I bought some at the Spice House last weekend and it's really fantastic.

Such a deep tomato flavor.

I made salad dressing with it and it was delish. Can't wait to experiment with it!

I`v been using it for years here, it goes well in Bread dough, and also with onion/garlic powder and salt in a bag to shake home made natchos or tortila chips in whilst their still warm.
great on potato wedges as the shake mix too.

I make this powder myself. Whenever I blanch and peel tomatoes, I save the skins and put then in a dehumidifiar or smoke them on my BBQ. Then I run them through my spice grinder (an older coffee grinder).

This powder is quite bitter, which is one of the reasons I think many recipies called for skinless tomatoes. I use them on many salads and side dishes for variety in flavoring.

I like this spice, if it can be called that. Yes, the smoked ones are really wonderful.
