Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Sun-Dried Tomatoes
Very tasty Sun-Dried Tomatoes are made from mature regular tomatoes or from anhydrous tomatoes (a special variety of tomatoes, which is common in many islands in the Aegean Sea and resembles the Italian pomodori or roma variety). Dried under the sun they evaporate the water they contain. On drying, tomatoes lose 88% of their weight while larger tomatoes lose 93%.
Sundried tomatoes have the same nutritional value as fresh and to produce a kilo of sun dried tomatoes need about 14 kg of fresh tomatoes. They are rich in lycopene, antioxidants and vitamin C. They are preserved in sterilized jars in olive oil and various aromatic herbs and spices, like coriander & cardamom.
Sundried tomatoes have a great variety of colors, sizes and flavors. They have many uses in the Mediterranean Cuisine. Traditionally they are served with olive oil, feta cheese & basil for a very tasty meal.

Excerpt from the introduction:
«Αναρωτιέμαι συχνά που είναι το απόγειο της μαγειρικής. Είναι τα πιο φρέσκα υλικά, οι πιο πολύπλοκες γεύσεις είναι το καθημερινό ή το σπάνιο; Δεν είναι τίποτε απ΄όλα αυτά. Το απόγειο δεν είναι ούτε η κατανάλωση του φαγητού ούτε το μαγείρεμα, αλλά η προσφορά του φαγητού και η συντροφικότητα…»
