I’m truly grateful Mom and Dad shared their bountiful garden harvest with us. Unfortunately, due to circumstances beyond anyone’s control, a big chunk of the tomatoes were so ripe they couldn’t wait for me to buy more canning supplies in the next day or so, oh no.
Both Husband and I knew we would be haunted by our ancestors if we let even a fraction of this generous gift spoil before I could preserve it for later.
Fortunately, my dehydrator stepped up and made sun dried tomatoes out of the tomatoes in the most dire need of attention. (read how to make sun dried tomatoes on Lazy Budget Chef here.)
Unfortunately I don’t have storage space for so many jars of dehydrated and canned tomatoes. So I decided to make dried tomato powder instead!
