The end of summer means the end of tomato season. Fortunately, there are some easy GREEN ways to preserve the taste of summer.
When it comes to tomatoes, many people fall back on canning or jarring their crop for the colder months. But if you're looking for a cleaner flavor, dehydration is best.
Start by cutting each tomato into wedges and get rid of most of the seeds and water. If you don't, your tomatoes will take a very long time to dry. If you have a dehydrator, you're all set. If not, you can use the oven.
Place your tomato wedges on a wire rack, dust them with a little sea salt and place them in a 175 degree oven for about six hours.
Your finished tomato should be bendy, not brittle.
Let them dry completely before storing them in an airtight container.
