Dehydrating tomatoes

sheltiecheAugust 13, 2014

So I �splurged� on inexpensive Nesco dehydrator. Anyone has an experience drying tomatoes in dehydrators, which varieties are the best... I know... cherries but still any better than others, any tips are most welcome!

I did San Marzanos last year with the same dehydrator. Worked fine.

Thank you for suggestions!
San Marzano and my garden are not friends...
but have found varieties suggested by brokenbar, very interesting if other Italian varieites will do better for me.

I been drying Glacier and Bloody Butcher. Both are fairly small tomatoes but have big tomato flavor. Being smaller, I don't think that it is worth the time to remove the skins before drying.

The skins are a little tough after drying, but they are still fine with me. After drying, they have that classic "sundried tomato" taste.
