Oh yea, I’m so glad I dehydrated a lot of them. I love soup in the winter, with a nice hunk of good bread and a piece of cheese. Those tomatoes, simmered a few hours in a pot with some other good ingredients, add just enough tomato flavor to the dish and also keep some of their consistency, unlike frozen ones. When you freeze them, you get tomato moosh later. (Did I make up a word?) The dehydrated ones stay in pieces, even after several hours of simmering. So, if you’ve never dehydrated tomatoes, give it a try next year and I think you’ll like your results.
It’ll be a long winter, and folks who were able to “put by” some good stuff in their season will benefit from getting those things out now, to make good things and remember the garden. Ahh yes, I love to remember the garden. Spring will come!
