drying tomatoes

We received 2 tomato plants from our neighborhood garden club in April. We planted them in a separate area because our garden area was "full" We were able to cover them when the hail hit our area TWICE this spring and so thankful we did. Our other tomato plants received hail damage leading to wilt but these two didn't. What bountiful plants these are!
We have enough to dry for our dried tomato recipes.
Drying them is so easy, slice to ~ 1/4 inch and lightly salt. Dry until it is leathery about 8 hours at 115.
