Slice of curiosity…
Sun-dried tomatoes are a food of the Sicilian tradition and in particular of the city of Pachino. They greatly increase the excellent nutritional properties of fresh tomatoes giving that extra touch to your pizza. They are rich in vitamin C and lycopene (good for Osteoporosis), two important antioxidants for the skin and for the health of the body in general.
To sundry tomatoes, blanch them and remove the skin. Cut them in half and squeeze out the pulp and seeds, then place the tomatoes in a single layer on a rack in full sun. Make sure there are a couple of inches of airflow under the rack. Turn the tomatoes every day and bring the rack indoors at night
