Sun Dried Tomatoes
These sun dried tomatoes imported from Turkey are moist and soft, ready to be stirred into pasta, added into sandwiches, or made into a spread. Our sun dried tomatoes are picked and dried at the peak of ripeness so they have a rich, concentrated tomato flavor.
For optimal freshness, store opened and unopened packages in your refrigerator.
How to Use Sun Dried Tomatoes
1. Pasta and Salads: Chop up sun dried tomatoes into small pieces and toss them into penne with chicken for a flavorful and simple meal. You can also add them into any salad (including egg and tuna salad) for heartiness and flavor.
2. Soups and Sauces: Substitute a cup of sun dried tomatoes for tomato paste in a vegetable soup for a pronounced tomato flavor. Or add some to your store bought marinara sauce for a homemade taste without all of the work! For a delicious twist on pesto, stir in finely chopped sun dried tomatoes.
3. Spreads and Dips: Blend sun dried tomatoes in a food processor and stir them into mayonnaise or butter to make a sun dried tomato spread. Combine finely minced sun dried tomatoes with mined garlic for a great crostini spread. Or even wrap brie, sun dried tomatoes, and basil in phyllo dough and bake it for a satisfying cheesy dip.
4. Bread and Meats: Mix these tomatoes into bread, focaccia, or cornbread to add another dimension of flavor. And add them to burgers for a summertime twist.
2. Men who eat two or more servings of tomato products average a 35 percent reduction in prostate cancer risk.
3. The best food sources of lypocene according to the Tomato Research Council in New York City: (Amount of lypocene in one ounce) Tomato Sauce, Spaghetti Sauce, Ketchup (5 mg); Tomato Soup, Canned Tomatoes, Tomato Juice, Vegetable Juice (3 mg); Minestrone Soup, Vegetable Soup, Pink Grapefruit (1 mg).
4. Tomatoes are high in Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Calcium and Potassium.
5. Lycopene occurs in only a few foods besides tomatoes and since you absorb more lycopene when you eat a little fat with your tomato some olive oil or cheese isn't such a bad thing after all.
6. A good source of vitamin C, especially fresh tomatoes. Latest news: yes, tomatoes offer vitamin C, and a lot else besides. It turns out that they are rich in important carotenoids, including lycopene---a relative of the more celebrated beta carotene. Lycopene appears to help prevent prostate cancer.
7. Should Women Eat Lycopene Products Too? Doctors and scientists now encourage men to eat a lot of tomato products because they are rich in lycopene, which seems to lower the risk of prostate cancer. But can lycopene help prevent cancer in women, too? A few studies have found that in postmenopausal women, high blood levels of lycopene are associated with a lower risk of breast cancer. But at this point nobody can say that eating tomatoes will reduce your risk. More than one study has found that women who consume the most lycopene are less likely to have precancerous cervical cells. Despite the unknowns, women should treat themselves to lycopene-rich foods?particularly tomato products.
8. If you suffer from skin disease, a tomato a day may keep the doctor away, as tomatine, tomato's principle alkaloid, concentrated in its branchy leaves and green fruit, heals certain fungous diseases of the skin.

“For a recent camping trip, I ordered raw mixed nuts, medjool dates and sun dried tomatoes. This was my first order from NutsOnline and I couldn't be more impressed with the quality of everything received. The dates were so rich and delicious they seemed sinful, the nuts fresh and beautiful, the tomatoes the best I've ever had. I'm hooked!”

“I have a unique testimonial
your products not only taste terrific
and are great in any recipe but they smell amazing too! Why do i say this - well i bought 2 lbs of sun dried tomatoes and apparently they were irresistable to my 2 year old Setter - who stole the bag from the pantry and ate the entire bag - i had only used a few of them before her theft”

“I ordered the sun-dried tomatoes....OMG.. SO GOOD! I use them to cook just about everything!
We are in a very rural area so getting dried fruit is hard and usually super expensive! The strawberries are super tasty & my daughter loved the kiwi. Shipping has always been super fast! I love you guys!!
Thanks for making good food easy to get!! ”

“I just want to say the the sun dried tomatoes I received were fantastic.
I used to purchase similar ones in a local grocer, then they were replaced with dried up slivers in a bag, or the ones packed in oil. I was missing the fresh moist goodness so I began a search to find great sun dried tomatoes, then I came across nutsonline.com.
I was elated to find such moist delicious tomatoes again. I order them right away and couldn't wait for them to arrive. Shipping was fast and I was so happy to have such tasty tomatoes. I will be a frequent returning customer.

“Just wanted to say I received my first order yesterday, and am more than satisfied with your service! As I was opening my package, of course everyone wanted to know what I had, so I told them all about you. Your web site is very well laid-out and easy to navigate; your customer service is excellent, very prompt and helpful; everything arrived as promised, in very good time; and it's delicious! Those yummy sun-dried tomatoes especially -- I had to exercise real self-discipline not to devour the whole package all at once!
I'm sure it won't be long before I'm placing another order.
