TL, I just cut up my toms into half- inch slices or chunks, put them on the tray and dehydrate away. With cherry toms, I cut them in half and dry cutside up. Blissfull had started the thread, it was pretty recent.

Oh good, PF found the roasting.

For Romas, I slice them vertically into 4ths--not quarters. So instead of cutting in half, I cut into four (sometimes 5) slices. I don't seed or skin them first. I dehydrate at 140 for about 12-18 hours. I rotate the racks every 5-6 hours. I then put them in the freezer for 24 hours to finish and store in an airtight jar.

I "think" it removes any remaining moisture. When I got my dehydrator, the booklet that came with it recommended putting the dehydrated stuff in the freezer for 24 hours. I've been following the manufacturer's instructions! I haven't had any of the stuff I've dehydrated get moldy because of a bit of moisture remaining.

I've never frozen anything I've dehydrated. If it's leathery, I may keep it in the fridge. If it's crispy, it goes in the cupboard. If the crispy stuff is frozen, it would lose its crispyness.

I popped over to the garden today, since it seems like forever since I was there, and picked some jalapenos, Thai chili (Medusa Head) and bell peppers. I also got a couple okra and a few sauce tomatoes.

I just got done canning some pickled jalapenos. I got 8 jelly jars, so I am pretty excited. And it sounds like they all pulled down...

Salsa, salsa and more salsa! Not only do I have to keep my pantry full, I also have to keep my brother-in-law supplied. ;)
