  • tomatoes
  • salt (optional)
  • olive oil (optional. Just drizzle some on top if you like)


  • See below for photos. Slice tomatoes into uniform thickness (so they dry at about the same rate). If you will be using the olive oil and salt, place tomatoes in a bowl, drizzle and sprinkle and toss lightly.
  • Place on dehydrator trays (using non-stick sheets) or on a cookie sheet if using your oven. Once they are partially dry (i.e. not "goopy" anymore, remove the non-stick sheets and dry directly on the rack for quicker drying.
  • Dry until no moisture remains, but tomatoes are still flexible. (Don't worry - if they get stiff and dry, they still taste great!)
  • Store in an airtight container, in the fridge or freezer for long term. I use the same small 4 x 2 x 8 2 mil bags from Country Life that I've written about before. And I seal them with these handy-dandy "I can't deal with twist ties" Twixit Clips.
