There was a time when I used the microwave for everything. Now I use it as little as possible, but I could never give up microwave popcorn
, or my nightly heating pad
, so our microwave remains a household staple.
Of all the things you can do in microwaves, I never would have guessed that you could sun-dry tomatoes (ok, not really "sun," but definitely "dry"). It will allow you to use your garden tomatoes in recipes all year round.
Drying them in your microwave is the fastest and easiest method. All you need is the tomatoes, salt, and if you choose, seasoning salt and garlic. Prepare, microwave, let them sit according to the instructions
, seal them in a baggie, toss them in the fridge, and keep them as long as you'd like.
