Ernie, I have been very disappointed that this cubit is getting such a slow start! I don't dry much but I can a lot! Have an Excalibur but don't use it much anymore. Waiting for good tomatoes!

How do you think it'd work to dry cherry tomatoes? I know when I eat them and they're a bit shrivled the flavor seems intensified. However, I could also see these turning out like dried tomato skin due to their size.

Just keep an eye on them and don't over dry. I usually put them in a bag in the freezer so they stay fresh. And you're right, they do taste great! Like tomato raisins!

Oh man, tomato raisins!!!! That sounds fabulous!!!! It's so hot and dry outside I might experiment with letting them dry on the vine (9:25 at night and is still 100 degrees, and humidity was up around 20% -- has been 5 - 10% so we're excited it's so humid!).

that sounds awesome on the cherry tomatoes... I havent done much for dehydrating, mostly just can or freeze everything ~ now I'm thinkin I need to try this !! Do you do anything to them before putting them on trays besides washing? They just sound to yummy to pass up.. thanks for the ideas

The first time I tried them they just dried in a bowl on the counter. Of course our humidity runs about 10% most of the year. I like to add them to baked snack mixes like CHEX mix.
