These are great to have around for salads, savory omelets, simple late summer pastas, sandwiches and snacks. And while super simple, there are a few tips to keep in mind before you set out to dry your own: you want to begin with plum tomatoes because they're not too juicy. Juicy = harder to dry. And be sure to set your tomato slices on a baking rack and then place them on a pan. This will prevent them from sitting in their juices, which will make it very hard (or impossible) to dry out properly.
