Sun dried tomatoes are my favourite amongst dried peppers, dried aubergines and dried green beans. Every year I enjoy drying my own vegetables to last me until the next summer. I use them in casseroles, stir fries, rice, even in salads in olive oil. This year I used beef tomatoes. First I washed the tomatoes and slice them about 1 cm thick. Place all the sliced tomatoes on a clean cloth and sprinkle salt on them ( normal table salt is fine ). Make sure all the tomatoes salted on both sides. Then leave them to dry on a sunny spot. It takes about 4-5 days on hot days. Turn them over after 2-3 days for other side to dry.
Place them in airtight bags before storing.
