Default Re: Are my garden tomatoes "artisan"?


First of all, my favorite word there is a "glug" of olive oil!

I will definitely give this side salad a whirl and love the details.

The first tray ended up dead dry and crisp so I powdered them in a mortar & pestle. That produced a very flavoursome condiment. The two trays pictured were put in at about 140 F for a couple of hours and they came out fine. I bottled them in olive oil with a basil leaf. Very tasty indeed.

A very versatile thing these WFO's and quite forgiving as well.
Looks awesome! I've never tried this. It's going on the list!
