Our Julienne Super Red Sun-Dried Tomatoes are vine-ripened tomatoes picked at their ripest then sliced into halves, dried, then cut into thin julienne strips. Drying concentrates the rich, sweet flavor of the tomatoes, and we use a variety of techniques to preserve their bright red color and overall freshness.
Our Super Red Sun-Dried Tomatoes range from bright red to deep orange in color. The drying process helps capture and intensify all the great, summery flavors of fully ripe, fresh tomatoes. Sun-dried tomatoes, which tend to be slightly sweeter than fresh tomatoes, can also be stored for much longer than fresh tomatoes.
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 traveled north through Central America and into what is now Mexico and the southwestern United 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.
