    Ingredients

    Sun dried tomato, sulfur dioxide (added for color retention).

    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.

  • 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.
