An Awesome Gift --- Tomato Powder

The card read "I think each jar has the equivalent of 75 Juliette tomatoes in it.  I absolutely LOVE this stuff and put it on everything.  Finally dried enough tomatoes this year to make some for you guys :-) (YOU BETTER LIKE IT!!)" and the label on one side of the jar reads, "Add it to: pasta, popcorn, cream cheese, pesto, salsa, soup, salad dressing, baked potatoes. JUST USE IT!!"

What an awesome gift from my niece, Leigh. It was hard to imagine 75 tomatoes packed in this small 2 1/2" diameter by 3" high jar until I opened the jar and got a whiff of the aroma --- wow!  Started with the pasta suggestion. I mixed some delicate pasta with finely chopped garlic and olive oil that had been mixed together a few hours earlier.  I then tossed in some slivered basil, tossed again and topped with a dusting of the tomato powder. Great dinner!  Thank you Leigh!

This homegrown, homemade product  is private stock.  Sorry no links to the farmstand :-(

A few weeks later I used this a a topping for Trader Joe's Lemon Pepper Pappardelle Pasta tossed with Vegan Cream Sauce. Also very good :-)
