    Ingredients

    Sun dried tomato, salt.

    Our Natural Sun-Dried Tomatoes are lightly salted to aid the drying process, but contain no other ingredients. They range from rich brick-red to deep red-brown in color. Larger pieces are sometimes a bit crisp along the edges, but tend to be dense and chewy unless rehydrated first. They have been conveniently diced for easy use.

  • The drying process helps our Sun-Dried Tomatoes capture and intensify all the great, summery flavors of fully ripe, fresh tomatoes. Sun-Dried Tomatoes may tend to be slightly sweeter than fresh tomatoes as well.

  • Tomatoes have been cultivated for thousands of years by the indigenous peoples of the Andes Mountains. Over time the practice of growing tomatoes for consumption travelled north through Central America and into what is now Mexico and the Southwestern U.S. states.

  • The word "tomato" is thought to come from "tomati," the word used for the fruit in pre-Industrial Mexico.

  • During the 16th and 17th centuries, Spanish and Portuguese explorers brought tomato seeds to Europe. Tomatoes were frequently grown as ornamental plants and spread throughout Europe (and back to the colonized eastern seaboard of North America) for this purpose.

    Turkey Sausage with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Feta Cheese

    The mild flavor of turkey allows our Diced Sun-Dried Tomatoes to shine in this savory homemade sausage. The tomatoes and a bit of pork fat add moisture and richness, while the salty, tangy notes of Feta cheese add depth of flavor.
