    Ingredients

    Sun dried tomatoes, 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. Select Sun-Dried Tomato halves are ground into powder and sifted through #30 mesh screen. The powder is a rich brick-red color.

  • 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.

  • Classic recipe

    Sun-Dried Tomato Seared Chicken Breast with Couscous

    This dish utilizes our Sun-Dried Tomato Powder in two ways: as an innovative flavoring for the seasoned dredging flour, and as a component in the pan sauce. White wine, fresh basil and olive oil round out the sauce, which perks up the couscous.
