Thanks for the welcome, Penny

Yes I dried them myself.  The hard part was slicing all those little 
tomatoes into halves, it got tedious... but I'd do it again, it's worth 
it.  It took about 4 days, as I recall.  I dont remember the name of my 
dehydrator, its back in Pittsburgh still, but its got 4 round stacking 
trays about 18" diameter and a heat source at the bottom.  The heat is not 
very even bottom to top, so I rotated the trays each day.  I want to try 
drying other veggies at some point.

Jeanne  - and I'm going to miss the snow, and the seasons...
