Dehydrated tomatoes almost over ripe tomatoes for 12 -14 hours at 135 degrees. It is not necessary to remove the seeds and skins. They can be dehydrated at blended into the tomato powder.  It is a great way to use tomatoes that may have ended up in the compost bin otherwise.


Slice the tomatoes 1/4 of an inch thick and dehydrate until crisp. Allow to cool before throwing them in the blender.

Store in a glass jar, not plastic.

To make 6-8 oz tomato paste:

1/2 cup of tomato powder
1 cup of water
1 teaspoon of sweet pepper flakes
1/2  teaspoon of  sea salt

Paste will thicken as it adsorbs the water.
