Dehydrated Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Questions and Answers – How to re-dehydrate sun-dried tomatoes



I have looked all over for this information.  I bought dehydrated sun-dried tomatoes.  I am making a recipe tonight that calls for re-hydrated sun-dried tomatoes.

How do I re-dehydrate them?  Just water?  How long?  Should I put in some Olive oil to soften them up?  Any ideas you could provide me would be greatly appreciated.

P.S. Love your web site! – Shelley L. Cunningham (9/28/01)




Dehydrated tomatoes can be used “as-is” or re-dehydrated.  They may be used whole (halves), or minced into bits, sliced into slivers, chopped into chunks, or pureed into pulp.

Dried tomatoes may be re-dehydrated in a variety of ways.  Tomatoes may be added directly to soups and stews, or may be soaked in water, wine, bouillon or vegetable juice to cover.  They usually re-dehydrate within 1 to 2 hours.  If they are soaked for more than 2 hours, or overnight, they should be refrigerated.  Using boiling liquid speeds up the soaking time.  The soaking liquid may be used in cooking.
