    Been a very busy morning. Started my sauce at 4:30 am. Made 50 meatballs and added to sauce. Will be in freezer some time today. I decided to dehydrate what tomatoes were left over. So I now have 3 trays of tomato chips with basil, garlic, oregano and sea salt.
    And 3 trays of sauce which when finished will go back into blender and become tomato paste powder. It to has basil, garlic, oregano, sea salt and jalapeno & green peppers already mixed in.

    It all looks very good. I have never made tomato powder before. I think I'll Do that this Summer.

    After I get the drool marks off my monitor, and dry out my keyboard, I'll tell you just how delicious your sauce, tomato chips, and powder look!
    I am seriously thinking about saving up my egg money and buying a dehydrator. Home-made tomato powder to thicken stews, soups, and even sauces. Oh, my!!!!

    Thanks Barb. You will love it. Ten lbs. of tomatoes fit in a pint jar.

    Jane, You can do so much with a dehydrator. You wont be sorry if you buy one. But you will be sorry if you don't buy a big one. I do veggie, jerky, fruit, fruit roll ups for the kids, candy (Butterfingers), vidialia onions are better then any potato chip, corn chips. If you have stock you can have soup in minutes. It's endless.

    I ended up with a 1/2 pint jar of tomato paste powder. And I ate all the tomato chips.
