Tomato Powder Empty Tomato Powder

Post  llama momma 1/22/2015, 10:00 pm

I found the following info on tomatoes to make tomato powder.  It also includes rehydration ratios to turn the powder back into paste, sauce, etc.   I don't think this idea was discussed anywhere else on the forum.  It's good to have options:

We dehydrated some of our paste tomatoes for the first time last year.....we were able to get 1 1/2 pints worth of dried & blended up into powder......

so far we have only used the powder in soups....been working great so far .....Im wanting to try it soon with making it into some pizza sauce to see if it turns out good.....if it does we will for sure do more hydrating of tomatoes again this year....

happy gardening

WOW!  I did not know that and that will be so useful!  Thanks for sharing.  I have a great dehydrator will have to buy some mason jars as my vacuum sealer will seal them and they would be the best for longer term storage.  

So excited for a new season in the garden Very Happy

I have dehydrated tomatoes, but left them in solid form for spaghetti sauce.  Just have to add hot water and spices.  That allowed me to seal them in the bags instead.  Nice & flat...

here's another idea using dehydrated tomatoes, but it not powder form, but flat.

The powdered tomato is a great idea, takes up less space, and if it is good, will be so easy to use.

I searched web for recipes, etc. and found this site that drys a lot of things, making powder, slices, etc of all kinds of veggies. A gardener could grow/dry his/her own.

Littlejo are you talking about this site or another site. If the latter, there is no link to the site.

Thanks for letting me know that I forgot to put the link!
I think drying pumpkin for pies/ cake/muffins etc. would be good. My pumpkins did bad this last yr. and when I went to buy canned pumpkin for Thanksgiving, the groceries had none. I did not get any til just the day before Thanksgiving.

Mission Accomplished

I finally did it.  One-half pint of tomato powder made from 195 Juliet Grape tomatoes and a few Gilberties.  Sealed with my new FoodSaver accessory - a Regular Jar Sealer Vacuum Sealing Accessory.
Tomato Powder Tomato22

Now I have figured out drying Basil, Leeks, bell peppers and Tomato Powder.  Now onward to dehydrated onions and potato trials.  Next year canning or maybe I will try canning my Pinkeye Purple Hull peas that will start coming in this week.  Since I will be retiring in 14 days I may get adventurous and try actually canning the peas.

Refresh me in case I asked this earlier -- how is the dried basil? Basil is especially notorious for losing its flavor when dried, and even tasting differently -- with notes of pine, for instance.

Filled 4 round dehydrator trays with 12 to 14 average size sliced tomatoes (not paste)  and filled in spaces with cherry tomatoes cut in half.  Results were 3 and 1/2 oz. of tomato powder.  It's nice to have options like this for extra tomatoes.  Going to refill the dehydrator again this morning.  Meatier paste tomatoes I assume would result in a greater return.

I'm heading towards that also, but have to use frozen then thawed cherry maters.  Do you think that will work OK?  They will probably be mushy.  

I don't have a sealing thingy ether so my dh'd stuff is just going into jars with desiccant packs.  Not sure if that works.  I would hate to lose anything to mold.

Not sure but I would guess the same as you that once thawed it might be mushy.  When you dehydrate for powder till very crispy dry, seems like it should work anyway. 

 The lady in the article said she used her stored powder for well over a year straight from the jar.  She didn't mention dessicant that I recall.  I've read if there is moisture you'll know from the mold, eeww. I put mine in a freezer bag and squeezed out the air, didn't bother with the vacuum seal  a meal thing.  It's in the freezer.

I've been making tomato sauce the last couple of days. I've got the skins/seeds on the dh to dry right now. Will make into powder. DH wants me to try it in making a "go-bag" ketchup. Everything dehydrated & mixed. Just needs a little water...

CC - The powder I've already got done seems to be fine without vac sealing...

I over-dehydrated cherry tomatoes yesterday and they will make GREAT powder.
But - when I tried one as a snack, the skin broke off and stuck to my teeth.  Should I have skinned them before drying??

Nope! Just slice in half and dehydrate. It's ready when you cool off any type tomatoes and it snaps like old twigs. Then its ready to grind up into powder.
