Exclusively Sun-dried!

Exclusively Sun-dried Plum Tomatoes, Herbs and Blueberries

This time, it worked! I dried the tomatoes for about three days on a big rock on the beach under the summer sun. They turned out to be great semi-dried tomatoes! YAY!
Yes, these taste way better than the ones that went through three drying methods!

Don't they look lovely this way? ;) The sun-dried herbs also look nice in these packages.

Mini pizza for lunch today! :D

The mini pizza pieces were OK, but the strong taste of the cheese and the crunchiness of the crust (actually Chinese dumpling skins) sort of hid the rich flavor and the pleasant chewiness of the tomatoes. Next time I would definitely go for mozzarella or cream cheese.
Definitely. ;)

Oooh, those look amazing! Did you do something different when sun drying this time?

Hi N,

This time, I seasoned them with a little amount of Deep Seawater salt. And to make the salt very fine and dry so that it will cover all the tomato halves evenly, I microwaved and ground it with mortar and pestle.
That's a technique I learned from traditional Japanese chefs when I was a dishwasher at a Japanese style pub. ;)

Hi Anonymous commenter,

Don't they look nice?
I downloaded the blank ones from this website:

...then typed in the names on them and printed them out.
Yep, took an easy way out. ;)
