Ah yes, remember the days of Tuesday's Tips!? I know I am a day late by a couple of months.... well better late than never....
It is an amazing tomato year for me. It is hard to know what to do with them all! I have been canning and dehydrating like crazy, as well as sharing. I have canned sauce, soup, red & green salsa. I haven't made a count yet. That will come at the end of the season...whenever that may be! In the meantime I want to share with you and amazing new way to dry tomatoes... Dried Green Tomatoes with Sriracha Sauce. It is simple and easy...which is a blessing this time of year and ever so delicious! Almost fried green tomato-ish. DH really loves them!
Simple Steps---> wash your green or greenish tomatoes. The semi pink ones work here too, no need to be fussy. I slice mine about 1/4 to 3/8 inch thick. Then I add a couple drops of diluted Sriracha Hot Sauce. I dilute it 50% water to 50% sauce. It goes on a bit nicer and is plenty hot plus, stretches your sauce when you are doing a ton like me. I only add a few drops to the middle so there is still a green tomato flavor. If you spread the sauce over the whole tomato slice the sauce will overwhelms any tomato taste. I use the Excalibur Dehydrator at 140 degrees for about 14 hours. Bag them up or start eating them!
Green tomatoes sliced to about 1/4 inch
Diluted Sriracha Sauce 50/50 with water
(of try your own favorite hot sauce)
Dry at 140 for 14 hours
That is it! I would love to hear what you think about this recipe.
Cucumbers are great this way too...even the boyo liked them!
