Jacklin Organic Dried Tomatoes

Drying is one of the oldest methods of preserving foods naturally. Our tomatoes are picked ripe and dried completely in food dehydrators instead of sun drying. This eliminates the risks of contamination, scorching and the need for preservatives. They are also enjoyed by raw food enthusiasts. Bursting with B-complex vitamins and lycopene, Jacklin Organic Dried Tomatoes are delicious tossed in salad, smoothies, pizza, pasta, stew or taken along as a perfectly wholesome snack pack.
