Servings: 1Prep Time: Overnight
Dehydrated tomatoes. Make sure the tomatoes are overripe (just before they really have to be thrown out) to get the best outcome. It will take several gallons of tomatoes to dry down to a quart of tomato powder. Just how many depends on the type of tomato used. It is not necessary to remove the seeds and skins. They will powder along with the rest of the tomato.
Slice the tomatoes 1/4 to 1/3 inches thick and dehydrate until crisp. Allow to cool making sure they are completely dry. Place the tomatoes in a magic bullet type blender and powder the tomatoes.
Store in a glass jar, not plastic.
To make 6-8 oz tomato paste use 1/2 cup of tomato powder, 1 cup of water, 1 teaspoon of sweet pepper flakes, and 1 teaspoon of salt. Paste will thicken as it adsorbs the water.
