Congratulations Heather! You will be getting an email with information from me shortly.
Now for rest of you... here's a sneak peak of what you will find in the dehydrating class . I am so looking forward to putting my Excalibur to serious work!
To rehydrate into tomato sauce: soak in water for 10 to 15 minutes, then blend to desired consistency. Ratios: 1:1 makes a thick tomato sauce and 2:2 makes a watery tomato sauce.
Simple. Easy. Fun. I'm all for this!
So, will you be joining me on this dehydrating adventure ? I really hope so!
If you are concern about the cost... you shouldn't. For the price of $8 a month, you will have access to 7 different classes ( Cultured Dairy & Basic Cheese , Dehydrating , Fundamentals & Fundamentals 2 , Lacto-Fermentation , Real Food Kids and Sourdough ) . That's a sweet deal if you ask me. If you haven't read my previous post about the dehydrating class and the benefits of signing up... go do that!
Throughout the eCourse, I am planning to create a Dehydrating Journal... much like the journal I did when I was going through the Sourdough eCourse . I loved journaling my way through that eCourse!
Now, here's a hearty recipe to put all those dried tomatoes to good use. Enjoy and let me know if you are coming with me to class !
Tomato-Based Winter Stew
Use dried tomatoes as the basis for winter stews, and enjoy garden fresh flavor year round!
Brown meat in a soup pot with onion, garlic, and bell pepper. Add some fat if the meat is very lean. When vegetables are softened and meat is browned, add potatoes. Cook for a few minutes, stirring frequently to prevent sticking. Add cooked beans, if using.
Run blender to make a sauce out of dried tomatoes and water. Add to soup pot. Add additional stock to desired consistency. Add salt and pepper to taste, along with dried basil. Let stew simmer until potatoes are tender. Adjust seasonings to taste, and serve.
What things would you want to make with dried tomatoes? Have a great week and h ope to see you in class!
