semi- Home made sun-dried tomato spread

If you have a super market that sells already sun dried tomatoes,
you can simply add olive oil to it and a dash of salt and simply create
your own sun-dried tomato spread.

Sometimes gourmet sun-dried tomato spread can be over $15
just for a little jar.

What's nice is that you can freeze the plain sun-dried tomatoes
and make little by little rather than using it all and it spoiling.

You can cultivate it by adding garlic to sometimes and sometimes
adding other herbs to change it up. All you have to do is take
the dried tomatoes and mince them up and after you add
the olive oil-- it will soften more and be a little softer than the
dried up tomato that you started with.

You can use sun-dried tomato paste for pasta sauces, especially
chilled pasta salads, on good crusty bread or any bread for
that matter, and in sandwiches as a spread.

The best sandwich is a sandwich with some turkey or chicken
with some basil leaves, mozzarella cheese and sun-dried
tomato spread.  YUM-ME!
