In the 1980s, the sundried tomato ruled supreme. There was hardly a recipe or menu that did not feature them. And for good reason, they were imported directly from the Mediterranean where absolutely wonderful tomatoes were being sun dried and they tasted divine.
Their very popularity created demand that the Mediterranean producers could not meet and many food companies rushed to fulfill the demand. Unfortunately, what was rushed to market were mealy, sawdust tasting tomatoes, dried in commercial dehydrators. This created a product that was bitter, with floppy flesh and leached out flavor. In the 1990s, sundried tomatoes rapidly began disappearing from menus, recipes, and our memories.
When we introduced our sundried tomatoes a few years ago, it was a revival and for many, an introduction to what a vibrant, intense, umami, sweet, sun dried tomato really tasted like.
Each one of our heirloom tomatoes are actually dried directly under the sun. Without chemicals, preservatives or additives, our tomatoes have deep red shading like a fine Cabernet wine.
Try our sundried tomatoes and delight in what authenticity and quality actually brings to your dishes!
