Food of the Month – Sun-dried Tomatoes

Just one ounce of savory sun-dried tomatoes added to your salad, pesto, soup or simply enjoyed on its own provides a boost of vitamin C, iron and fiber.  Such a little addition can do so much!

You can buy sundried tomatoes packed in olive oil or vacuum-packed at the market, or you can dry your own.  Just half and remove the seeds (optional) of the number of tomatoes you want and whack in an oven at 200 degrees and wait. . . 6 or 7 hours.  

So easy to do, and worth the wait. You control quantity, waste less, and can pick out the tomatoes to dry yourself!

To your health!
