Bear with me as I eat, dream, breath and process pounds and pounds of tomatoes. Here is the lastest incarnation. Inspired by Chez Pim
I sliced the tomatoes into 1/4" rounds and dried them for almost 2 days.Botulism doesn't sound like too much fun.
Give your tomatoes a boiling vinegar bath to kill any surface bacteria. I used our homemade version, but apple cider would be good too.
Dry them on paper towels and layer the pieces into clean sterile jars. I tried out Bormioli jars for the first time. They have a nice shape and a cool one piece lid. I counted approximately 75 pieces or 15-20 tomatoes per 8.5 oz jar.
Process the jars in a boiling water bath for 30 minutes for 8.5oz jars. I will gift the dried herb combinations and keep the fresh herb combos for myself. Of course remember to never eat anything with a popped out lid unless your looking for body botox.
