How To Dry Tomatoes

First dip tomatoes into boiling water to remove skin easier.
(cut Cherry tomatoes in half, skins don't need to be removed).

Wash and slice tomatoes into 3/8" slices.

Arrange tomatoes on your food dehydrator trays, make sure the tomato slices don't overlap
(if using Cherry tomatoes, place them cut side up to prevent dripping to the lower trays).

A recommended temperature for drying is between 125°F and 135°F
(if you have a verible temperature control unit.)

Drying time for your tomatoes will depend on the thickness/size and can range any where between 5-12 hours.
Tomatoes should be leathery or brittle when fully dried.
