If you don’t have access to a spot on the Mediterranean nor have the patience to watch tomatoes dry, then there’s an excellent hand produced product available for purchase: Villa Cappelli Sun Dried Tomatoes in Extra Virgin Olive Oil from Olio2Go.com. Villa Cappelli tomatoes are dried in Puglia, 100 percent organic, and cured entirely in extra virgin olive oil. Villa Cappelli adds garlic, mint, and a bit of vinegar to their cure and the result is outstanding. The tomatoes have a zesty character and pop in your mouth (the zest is positive overall, but there’s a slight battle going on with the sweetness of the tomato). Moreover, Villa Cappelli cuts their tomatoes a bit thicker than the standard format resulting in a plumper type of cured tomato, making it a good choice for cooking, as well. My favorite way to consume sun dried tomatoes cured in olive oil, however, is with very good bread, cheese, and a bit of salumi. Cooking high quality sun dried tomatoes cured in extra virgin olive oil is a bit of sin so try and consume them neat!
