Tomatoes, Sun-Dried

(Tomatoes, Sun-Dried)  Sun-dried tomatoes are relatively expensive, but they add a delicious gourmet touch to some recipes.  Apparently, the origin of sun-dried tomatoes is Italy, where prior to the days of canning, tomatoes were dried in the sun on the tile roofs.  We have a couple of bread recipes in which we've incorporated sun-dried tomatoes.  See the nutritional chart below.

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-19)
