Our Sun-Dried Tomato Powder is made from a special tomato variety grown across Turkey's Aegean Sea coastline. Sun-dried tomatoes are a natural source of umami, and this tomato powder adds a bump of rich savory tanginess.
Sauté the powder with aromatics like onions or garlic, use as a garnish on roasted vegetables or add to rubs for grilled meats.
"[I'll use] Burlap and Barrel’s when I’m looking to add complexity and acidity. It’s more of a special occasion sort of deal, reserved for garnishes and final flourishes." Sarah Jampel, Highly Recommended by Bon Appetit

Some handy conversions:
- Tomato paste: 2:1 - 2 parts powder to 1 part water
- Tomato sauce: 1:6 - 1 part tomato powder to 6 parts water
These tomatoes are grown by a network of smallholder farmers in the Aegean region in Turkey. The tomatoes are picked from the field, washed, sliced in half, then laid out to dry in the sun on wide sheets, where they lose up to 95% of their weight.
Fun fact: These tomatoes aren't as sweet as the tomatoes that you'd typically pick up at the market. There's a good reason for that: the sweeter tomatoes produce a clumpy, sticky powder, while these have a tangy kick that's easy to sprinkle on any dish.

The flavor is exceptional and I've been surprised how many uses there are for it.
Very raspy—great depth of flavor
Originally envisioned the tomato powder as an "cupboard staple" when needed a small amount of tomato paste. It is great for that but so much more! Love sprinkled on roasted veggies, eggs and baked on focaccia.
I wasn't sure if this would be ho-hum or a valuable addition to my spice pantry...and it's most definitely the second! The umami aspect blended with a roasted sweetness makes this tomato powder like a sweet paprika, but with far more depth. I put it on eggs, popcorn, tostadas, potatoes, even canned tuna. It is STELLAR!
