    I was expecting a pickle preparation that involves sun-drying the prepared tomato mixture. This is such a smart short cut. You already get that sun-kissed sweetness in yr grocery store 🙂

      tomatoes 1400 gms
      salt 250 gms

      Chop tomatoes into thick slices and stir in salt.
      leave for 3 days by stirring each day atleast once
      and on 4th day squeeze the tomato pieces and dry them under sun till tomato slices are completely dry.
      the squeezed out liquid is also kept under sun for 3 days and the above recipe can be followed without the need to heat the ingredients.
      try drying the tomatoes in oven if you wish.
