Some of you may remember last year that I published how I store my dried tomatoes in olive oil and leave them on the shelf for storage. At the time, I had just heard that some sites were saying it was not considered safe anymore, though I could find no research to back this up.
I shared with you all I knew and left it up to you.
I’m happy to say I’ve found some new information that confirms to me that this method is still safe! You know how one of the dangers of the Internet is that something can get picked up and spread around without sound research behind it and taken as fact? This seems to be what has happened with this method.
However, if you are nervous about it, there is an option of heating the oil first, though there will be some loss of flavor. I love it when you have choices and can make your own informed decisions!
Please see the original article, Drying Tomatoes And Storing In Oil, and read all the red highlighted areas for details of the updated safety information.
I’m off to dry some tomatoes!
