If you haven't tried sun-dried tomatoes before you should give them a whirl. They're basically ripe tomatoes (traditionally plum tomatoes) that have been dried until the bulk of their water content is evaporated. In a process similar to creating a reduction, what you are left with afterwards is a nice intense rich tomato flavor in a slightly chewy form. Mmm, chewy food.
As much as I love them, I am very picky about buying sun dried tomatoes. I've gotten them jarred and reconstituted with oil, but I find they tend to be very slimy. Ick, slimy food. I've also bought them vac-packed but they were too dry and it was more like eating tomato jerky. Boo, tough chewy food.
And then there were these. I bought them on a whim and fell in love. Like the package promises, they are extra moist and very flavorful. I chop them up and add them to my favorite dinner treat, mini veggie pizzas. But you can add them to anything...sauces, pasta, stir-fry...or you can process them into a paste and use them as a sandwich spread. One of my favorite breakfast sandwiches is egg whites with cheddar cheese and sun-dried tomato paste on a toasted bagel. Seriously, it has life-changing capability.
I'll see if I can come up with something fun to make with them this weekend, but in the meantime, see if you can't find some for yourself.
And you're welcome.
