Sun dried tomatos, where are they in market?

Where do i find these in the market? I've been wanting to try these for years.

Are they in the dried fruit ilse like raisens?

I think I saw some in a small jar next to the olives, but thay were like in oil.

Eric, Austin Tx.

Not all supermarkets carry sun dried tomatoes. One of the stores I shop at has them in the produce department. They used to have them in bulk, but changed over to selling them in plastic containers. They'll last longer if you keep them in the fridge.

Oil packed sun dried tomatoes are usually found near olives, etc. You can always soak dried tomatoes in olive oil for an hour or so if the recipe calls for oil packed.

I've dried tomato slices or tomato halves in a dehydrator. If I dry them to crisp they get too dark for my tastes. I kept them in zip lock bags in the freezer, dried until they are like raisins, chewable. They have a burst of summer tomato flavor in them and work like 'sun dried'. My most common usage of them is to fill a blender half full with dried tomatoes, fill it with water, blend, and use that for sauce. Delish!

My local Publix has them by the fresh tomatoes in proximity to the shallots and garlic.

This method should work in any supermarket. Walk up to a manager and say, "Where are the sundries tomatoes?".

Well, in the south you say, "where are the sundried tomatoes, y'all?"
In Minnesota: "oofda, where are the sundried tomatoes?"
In Australia: "mate, where are the sundried tomatoes?"
In Boston: "any sundried tomatoes and a cooaafee in here?"
In Canada: "where are the sundried tomatoes, eh?"

Same here Andy. And I can't figure out what that second item we supposedly order is? Please clue me in.

If a person wants to get the Boston accent down it is very easy. No "R at the end of any word. Labor = Labah If the R is in the beginning or close to it, you would pronounce order as ahdah. We just don't like the letter R.

Yes. I did notice the winking line at the bottom.

I make my own SDT from the cherry toms I grow. I use my dehydrator, so I guess technically they're not "sun dried." Cut them in half. They turn out nice and sweet.

You could probably do the same with fresh cherry toms from the store if you can't find them already dried. Any tom, really.

And don't forget to add the R where it doesn't belong, e.g. drawring instead of drawing, idear instead of idea. As JFK used to say, Cuber.
