What’s the difference between semi-dried tomatoes and sun-dried tomatoes?
While sun-dried tomatoes are fully dried to remove all their water content, semi-dried tomatoes are withdrawn from the heat before they fully dry out – so they stay plump, supple and still a little juicy.
The removal of some of the water content means semi-dried tomatoes have an intense, sweet flavour, but retain a more moist texture than their sun-dried counterparts.
They can also sometimes be referred to as ‘sun-blushed’ tomatoes.
How to store semi-dried tomatoes?
With ambient, pasteurised and IQF (frozen) semi-dried tomatoes available from Kiril Mischeff, storage conditions will vary.
Semi-dried tomatoes can be used straight from the pack, and don’t require any pre-soaking (unlike sun-dried tomatoes), but once opened, it can be sensible to preserve them in olive or sunflower oil, to prevent them from drying out.
You may also want to add herbs to the oil to add extra flavour. This oil can later be used, naturally infused with the tomato taste.
How to use semi-dried tomatoes?
Because semi-dried tomatoes still have a little of their moisture, they can be dropped straight onto salads, sandwiches or pizzas without any preparation or pre-soaking.
They can also be mixed into pasta dishes or sauces, enjoyed with bread and cheese, or served in an antipasti with cured meats.
How long do semi-dried tomatoes last?
Shelf life can vary depending on format and storage, but Kiril Mischeff can offer a pasteurised ambient product that promises a shelf life of two years.
