Simple Tomatoes - Learn the Basics

If you are new to dehydrating, check out the Dehydrating FAQs Page - it will answer a LOT of your questions!

1) Wash and de-stem tomatoes

2) Slice tomatoes about 1/4" thick.  I am using Roma tomatoes and cut each one in half first because I wanted smaller pieces.  You can leave the slice whole if you prefer - the diameter is not critical, but the thickness needs to be uniform.

Tip:  Use a knife with a serrated blade - it will work nicely for the tomatoes.
3) Arrange the tomato slices on your dehydrator trays in a single layer.
4) Load trays in your dehydrator

5) Set temperature for about 125 degrees.

Drying will take from 5-9 hours - depending on your ambient humidity.

The tomatoes are done when they are brittle or leathery (depending on your taste)
