Tomatoes are plentiful and we want some for soup this winter so decided to dry and store some yesterday.

We have a dehydrator we bought 40 years ago but it still works fine and to replace it would cost over $225. Prices have sure shot up since we bought.

As you can see it is simply a plastic box, with a heating element, fan and 5 shelves. It works efficiently and is easy to load and unload. The trick is to have all your slices the same thickness; easier said than done.

I think we may get a bushel of Roma tomatoes this weekend. I hear they're good in soups.

Have you dried tomatoes? Any suggestions?
