How to eat sun-dried tomatoes
Sun-dried tomatoes can be preserved in two different ways: in salt or in oil.
- Sun-dried tomatoes in salt: In the former case, it is a good idea to remove any excess salt before using them. In this way, they are also more digestible. In order to do this, just boil the sun-dried tomatoes for 1-2 minutes in unsalted water and then rinse them under the tap. Repeat according to taste.
- Sun-dried tomatoes in oil: sun-dried tomatoes in oil, on the other hand, can be eaten just as they are: After having been steeped in warm water and vinegar in order to make them softer and remove any excess salt, these dried tomatoes are then placed inside jars with oil. They are therefore more hydrated than sun-dried tomatoes preserved in salt and ready to be used immediately. Sun-dried tomatoes in oil can therefore be added directly to your recipes.
