Our Sun-Dried Tomato Powder is made from a special tomato variety grown across Turkey's Aegean Sea coastline. It adds a bump of rich, savory, umami tanginess to anything it touches.
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, Bon Appetit
- Origin: Aegean Region, Turkey
- Process: Sun-dried & ground
Ingredients: Sun-dried tomato, ground (Lycopersicon esculentum, Mill.)
- Tasting notes: Herb garden • Umami bomb
- Coat veggies in olive oil and toss, add to meat rubs and stews

Some handy conversions:
- Tomato paste: 2:1 - 2 parts powder to 1 part 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.

1st time trying Tomato Powder - success!
What do tomato powder, Drumstick Lemongrass, Hyssop Thyme, Cured Sumac, & Grains of Paradise all have in common? These delightful Burlap&Barrel spices are mixed into the winter squash I made for lunch today (I am munching as I compose this review)! Today was the first time using the tomato powder. I am totally enjoying each spice purchase! If I could have posted a pic, I would have :-) ...signed, The Spiciest Woman in the Neighborhood
Here’s the spice you didn’t know you needed
Tomato powder is the spice I turn to in all sorts of dishes from numerous cuisines, from a sprinkle over omelettes & guacamole to a last seasoning on tacos, grilled veg or cooked rice it imparts a subtle umami taste and adds brightness to many dishes. Get it & experiment with food and cocktails!
I adore all things tomato and ordered this based on the many positive reviews. Have to say, I'm disappointed. It's a flavorless brown powder. Tried it on eggs so far and I can't really taste it. When I put a pinch in my hand and eat it, I can taste a little something. But once it's on food, nada. Won't repurchase.
My favorite spice!!
This is my go to spice and you must try it. Tomato powder is so delicious and goes with nearly everything. The conversion chart to turn it into tomato paste and/or tomato sauce, put it over the top!
So damn versatile!
I am straight up addicted to the B&B's Sun-Dried Tomato Powder! I began using it in the things I would use tomato paste in (more in addition to the paste rather than as a full replacement of it) - it's got such a great level of umami and also a lovely bright acidic tanginess about it. My newest use is adding it to vinaigrettes as it helps round out the flavor and helps bridge the gap (in the same way that dijon does) between the acid of the vinegar and the earthiness of good olive oil. Such a great little secret flavor bomb! I actually bought several more bottles for Christmas gifts for veteran and novice cooks alike!
A delicious addition to our New Year’s Day Hoppin’ John. A great way to add tomato flavor without adding sauce/liquid to your recipe.
