I've been saving up my tomatoes trying to get enough to dry them and decided do a batch yesterday. In their raw state they were quite tasty, though maybe they could have been a bit sweeter, given more sun on my greenhouse. I didn't expect the wonderful flavour that would result. They are soooo sweet and moreish and I'm definitely going to make more. In fact I'll be buying up the larger supermarket ones when the prices drop. It's so much cheaper than the little pots of sun dried tomatoes!
Cut in half, seeds and green bit removed. Sprinkled with salt and some dried oregano.
After a couple of hours in the dehydrator they had begun to shrink and were very tasty.
I left these for about 6 hours, but larger ones would take longer. I squished them into a couple of clean jars and covered them with olive oil. They should be fine in the fridge for a couple of weeks, and will liven up some salads or perk up some bread and cheese. If you've got lots and want to keep them longer they apparently freeze well. Just pack them into plastic bags
Also yesterday we had the first of our sweetcorn and it was delicious. When I checked my seed packets I realised the Wagtail ones hadn't been opened. Oops! sorry if anyone ordered some after I recommended them before :( These are Swift F1 and I've also got some Lark F1. Both have done very well, with just a few of the top kernels undeveloped. Usually I find they are very patchy.
I love the way the lines twist round the cob. Nature can be so beautiful!
And very tasty :)
