Sun-Dried Tomato Halves
Sun-Dried Tomatoes are vine-ripened tomatoes that have been sliced and dried. Our Traditional Sun-Dried Tomatoes are lightly treated with sulfites to preserve their rich red color, but contain no other ingredients.
For use in preparations where they will not be cooked, blanch Sun-Dried Tomatoes for 30 seconds in boiling water to bring out their flavor and soften their texture.
Storage & handling
Store in a dry, cool place for up to 12 months under optimal storage conditions.

Our Traditional Sun-Dried Tomatoes range from dark red to brownish orange in color. Larger pieces are sometimes a bit crisp along the edges, but tend to be dense and chewy unless rehydrated first. Drying tomatoes concentrates their flavor and allows them to be stored for much longer than fresh tomatoes.
Use this simple, versatile, flavor-packed condiment as a spread for crostini, a base for pizza or a sauce for pasta. Also consider as a stuffing for chicken breasts and roulades or stirred into risotto. For a salad dressing, thin with extra virgin olive oil and a splash of vinegar.
