Principe Borghesi Sun-Drying Tomato

75 days. Principe Borghesi is an Italian heirloom grown exclusively for sun drying. Traditionally, the whole plant was dug up and hung out to dry in the hot Mediterranean sun. Borne heavily on compact determinate plants, it yields abundant, small, plum-shaped, ruby-red fruits with a rich Tomato taste that intensifies as it dries. To dry, we suggest cutting stems of the ripe fruit and drying in a dehydrator or on a baking tray in a gas oven heated only by its pilot flame. Dry until shriveled, leathery-tough and intensely flavored. Terrific in sauces, salads, soups, stews, pasta salad and creative bruschetta toppings. (OP.)
