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, umami flavor to any dish. Sauté the powder with aromatics like onions or garlic, use as a garnish on roasted vegetables or add to rubs for grilled meats.
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

This is a terrific item. A quick way to add a jolt of flavor to a recipe without opening up a can of paste when I only want a little. I find I'm using it frequently. Really terrific.
