View Full Version : question about sundried tomatoes
02-21-2007, 01:03 PM
I would love to know where people who live in the UK get their sundried tomatoes from. The ones I was using had salt in them so I stopped using them. Everywhere else seem to be preserved in sulphur dioxide...

Why not sun dry your own in the dehydrator?

I buy a whack of tomatoes when they're on sale, slice them and pop them in the dehydrator.
I can't find sundried tomatoes here (Canada) without sulphur either...

I don't have a dehydrator yet:(
I emailed this guy last night and he said he may be selling them on his website in a couple of months....fingers crossed!

Have you tried a health food store? That's the only place I can get min without sufur. The tomatoes are almost black and look like big rasins or something. V good :)

Ok so I found sundried tomatoes but they have quite a bitter taste to them even after I add dates when I do the Marinara sauce...
So I looked and looked (online and in the stores) and found some more. These say 95% tomatoes and 5% salt. Does that mean they have been cooked??? Damn its so hard to find a good tomato in these parts!:o
I've been getting them from Julian Graves in the UK -- haven't checked about preservatives eg sulphur dioxide, forgot to do that, but they're salt-free and when soaked briefly before use are fine.
