    I like to snack on dried tomatoes, too. Sometimes I sliver them and add
    them to spaghetti sauce. Thanks for the recommendation.

    Here's a really nice pasta dish with a light sun dried tomato cream
    sauce. I served it as a lunch special and got great reviews every
    time.

    This is a new product. Unlike the old ones which were
    dried hard as beef jerky, these are dried to a pliable
    state, like a raisin. Kinda pricey at $1.99 for a bag
    of 3 oz. TJ's seems to have anticipated that by putting
    on the bag that it takes 4 pounds of tomatoes to make
    what's in the bag.

    These are pretty good. Packed with tomato flavor.
    I ate my first bag yesterday and bought three more
    today. This is looking like a permanent addition
    to my cupboard.

    I eat most of them straight out of the bag. I suppose
    there's other things you could do with them, but why?
    I eat raisins out of the box or bag. They have a much
    brighter tomato flavor than paste or sauce. If I made
    bread, I might consider putting them in bread. It also
    would be a good color accent. I can imagine them in corn
    muffins -- the flavor and color would be complementary.

    heh heh.....

    Judging by the prices I see fer a dozen other foodstuffs and what I've
    paid fer sun-dried tomatoes in the past 10 yrs, not surprising.

    costco sells two versions, one is dry/pliable in a bag, the other is dried
    then packed in oil, seriously cheaper but the price escapes me atm.

    they are wonderful in bread, also great when you make a pasta that is a
    basic oil/butter/;pasta/garlic... dice or leave whole or add chicken cooked
    and diced, just wonderful,
