Ive seen multiple recipes including these, but Im wondering how one would go about making them? Would you just dehydrate tomatoes? Insight is desperately needed, I want to make zucchini pasta with marinara sauce later this week! :drool:
Yes, that's exactly what you do :) Whenever I have tomatoes that I'm not going to be able to eat up fast enough, I dehydrate them. I slice them (not too thinly though) and lay them 1 layer thick and dehydrate until done.
You might be able to find some locally for sale? *Ü*

here is a recipe for you to follow
“Oven dried TOMATOES:
Raw for All Frank Giglio
This is the perfect recipe for when you have a plethora of tomatoes in the garden and unsure of what to with them all. I like to use Roma tomatoes or ones that are slightly larger than golf balls
Take about 5 lbs. of tomatoes
Depending on the size, cut into quarters of halves and place in a large mixing bowl
Toss in 3 tablespoon fresh chopped herbs
Drizzle with a few tablespoons of Olive oil
1 tablespoon fresh black pepper
1-2 tablespoons sea salt
Gently toss then place onto dehydrator screens. Dehydrate at 115 for 18 to 24 hours. I like to dehydrate until tomatoes reduce by ¾ original size. If you plan to keep for a longer period of time, dehydrate for longer. Tomatoes can be kept in olive oil to preserve longer or simply place in the fridge.
