Sun Blushed Tomatoes

Sun blushed tomatoes are an amazingly sweet and luxurious addition to any dish. They are fab in pasta dishes, salads, as a topping on home made pizzas and they make any sambo seem kinda fancy. Sundried have a much more severe taste, which personally i am not a fan off. Sun blush tomatoes are available from lots of delis but come with a hefty price tag so this way you get your own sun blushed tomatoes without the air miles. This is a great way to preserve tomatoes if you have a glut at the end of the summer season. Store in an air tight container in a little olive oil.
