I was given a bag of "dehydrated" cherry tomatoes but have no idea of how to use them. Any ideas?

    I would try using them in place of sun dried tomatoes. I like to dice them for adding to frittatas.

      I eat them like candy.

        topbanana - do you "rehydrate" them or just use as is?

          If they are somewhat soft, I don't rehydrate. But if they are brittle, then I rehydrate.

        Use them just like you would raisins.

          They are a bit brittle, so think I will rehydrate. Good point that you can use them like raisins. I will make the frittata that topbanana suggested but wish I had some other recipes as I have a lot!

            Work them into bread.
