Homemade Sun-Dried Tomatoes

So hear me out. Sun-dried tomatoes at the store are SO EXPENSIVE! I have never bought them on my dollar because of it. Recently, I learned how to make them on my own, using free-energy (my car). Check it out.

What you will need:
-Roma tomatoes (they are the meatiest and have less juices and gooey stuff)
-A cookie sheet with four sides
-A car (or oven, but that's not free energy)

1. First of all, clean your tomatoes and dry them off. Then, slice them into thin wedges, discarding the squishy insides and seeds, and leaving only the meaty flesh. Place the tomatoes on your cookie sheet.

 3. Put your cookie sheet in your car on a warm day where your tomatoes can get lots of sunshine! This process may take up to two days depending on how warm it is outside. Or, if you'd like to finish it over night in the oven, just turn your oven to the lowest possible setting, but you might wanna watch it. I think an ideal temperature would be close to what the inside car temp is. Maybe the 120-130s.

 3. I like to store my sundried tomatoes in olive oil in the fridge. They will keep for months that way.

Make something YUMMY!
I made this yummy sun-dried tomato and chicken alfredo pasta!


  1. What a great tip! I always dry mine in a food dehydrator but this way would be perfect for people who don't own one! Never thought of this...

  2. Interesting idea! Did it happen to stink up the car at all, because that would be a dealbreaker...
