    Those look delicious. We wanted to get some of your seedlings this year, but things ended up being just a bit too crazy trying to settle in at the new house while doing a ridiculous amount of traveling. Next year for sure, though.

    This is the best way to save the summer for later. And to save fall for later, I will be picking up a basket of red peppers to roast and freeze for use in the winter.

    Just stumbled across your site and love it. You have a new follower. I have never made sun dried tomatoes but i do want to try it out now.

    I am on my way to the farmer's market to get tomatoes....can't wait to try a couple of these....

    I only just discovered your blog today and am going to have a lovely time peeking through your archives. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe, I'm going to give it a try today in my dehydrator.
    Cheers from Tasmania.

    P.S. I didn't know that you can freeze tomatoes whole! Really?! How cool, I shall give it a try :)

    Just tried these (I have an Excalibur as well -- LOVE IT!!) and they are amazing! They are sure to become one of my staples. Thanks for sharing.

    @scrappy buttons - I'd love to know if you like them!

    @One Crafty Mumma - It thrills me to know that I've got a reader from Australia! My uncle lives there and I visited there when I was younger although we never made our way out to Tasmania. Freezing tomatoes whole is one of my favorite ways to quickly save my tomatoes. It gets so hot in our kitchen that I like to wait and do my canning in the fall. This makes it easier to do that.

    @Kitchen Ninja - I'm so happy you liked them!!! The last batch I made only made it to the freezer after I had eaten about half of them.

    Thankyou :)
    I have some tomatoes marinating now. Can I just ask - once they're dry, do you just keep them in a container in the fridge by themselves? I don't need to store them in oil or anything like that? They smell so good!

    I store mine in a plastic freezer bag in the freezer. They've kept for over a year that way. I've never stored them in the fridge so I can't answer that question.

    Okay, thanks very much - I'm thinking ours might be gone before I need to think of storage anyhow LOL

    Just popping back in quickly to say that the sun dried tomatoes were AMAZING!!! Love, love, love :)
    Thanks so much, I'll definitely be making these again.

    I forgot to let you know I linked! Love the recipe. Such an easy way to use up the tomatoes!!! So yummy!

    @One Crafty Mumma - I'm so glad you liked them!

    @Andria - I'm glad you liked them as well!

    I am searching for a nice treat for myself and I saw this. I am going to give it a try. Looks lovely.
