sundried tomatoes
what is it?

Sundried tomatoes are exactly what they sound like: ripe tomatoes that have been dried in the sun (or by artificial methods) to remove most of the water content. Though they were orginally produced in Italy as a way to preserve abundant tomato crops for the winter months, these chewy, deeply flavored dried tomatoes have become popular in the U.S. and are used in a wide variety of dishes from sauces and salads to sandwiches and pasta.

how to prep:

Sundried tomatoes are usually packed in one of two ways: dry-packed in plastic or oil-packed in jars. If you buy dry-packed tomatoes (unless your recipe says otherwise) they really do benefit from a good soak in oil before being used.
