What's the difference between a sun dried tomato and a regular tomato?
sun dried tomatoes have been dried in the sun. Sometimes they are then stored in olive oil, or they are stored dry. Regular tomatoes undergo no preserving process.
Hi cashmere! Sun dried tomatoes are exactly that, they are sun dried which removes most if not all of the moisture in them. This process intensifies the flavor of each tomato. They can easily be found packed in olive oil in jars at your local grocery store. I use them in salads, pasta dishes, sauces, marinades, etc...! The flavors are really stronger than a regular tomato and are great tasting chopped and added to a little olive oil and chopped garlic heated slightly in a skillet and tossed over hot pasta. Top that with some fresh grated parmesan cheese and serve along side a nice salad and some toasted French bread. A meal fit for anyone!
Regular tomatoes are just as they come (fresh off the plant).
Sun dried tomatos have a great taste much more flavorful than regular tomatoes.
Sometimes the sun dried tomato is stored in olive oil, with a little cider vinegar.
Some times just dried and stored just so. No mattter what, the best sundried tomatoes taste good on just about anything and have a stronger, robust flavor
than your regular tomato.
In my opinion, sundried are stronger but the difference about is one is sundried and the other is all natural off the vine there both great in salads and pasta's but the sundried has a bolder taste....so enjoy them both.
Clearly, you received some informed answers to your question. I would like to add that a sun dried tomato's flavor is robust, more so than that of a fresh tomato (albeit as delicious as a garden tom is). If you can't get your hands on sun dried tomatoes, cut roma tom's in half, drizzle with olive oil and salt/pepper...roast until a lovely brown and those too have a magnificently complex flavor.
