No, it does not involve canning (surprise!). I used them to make
I checked them every hour and removed the ones that were finished (nice and leathery) as I went along. Now I have a nice little stash to use in some of our favorite dishes, like Penne Pasta with Chicken and Broccoli.
I will just drop a handful into some olive oil the night before and use in my recipe the next night. I confess that there should have been more tomatoes, but they were so good after they dried that I made a nice snack of a small handful.
