Sun-dried tomatoes were born in Italy as a way to store fresh tomatoes for the winter. Italians dried fresh tomatoes in the hot sun on their tile roofs as a way to preserve them for the cold months. These dried, concentrated vessels of flavour have enjoyed a popularity boost in the in the past couple of decades, initially as a gourmet item but fast becoming a favourite of home cooks. Sun-dried tomatoes can be used in a wide variety of recipes and come in a variety of shapes and colours. Sun-dried tomatoes have the same nutritional value as the fresh tomatoes they are made from. They are high in Lycopene, antioxidants, vitamin C and low in sodium, fat, and calories. Sun-dried tomatoes are available in halves, pieces, flakes and powder.
