Tomato Powder is one of the best powders to have in your store. I use it virtually every day. I add it to all my sauces, to mashed potato, rice and pasta. I sprinkle it on salad and sandwiches. And the nutritional value is right there at the top of the list. It is also amazingly easy to make!
MAKING Tomato POWDER
The secret to making a good powder is to be sure your Tomato pieces are very dry before you grind them. They should pass the clink test i.e. they will make a clinking noise when droppped on a plate.
You will need a coffee grinder.
Add a handfull of dried Tomato to the grinder.
Grind the dried Tomato to a fine powder. Grind in short bursts so as not to strain the motor.
Transfer the powder to an airtight container. Use a soft paint brush to clear out all the powder residue.
Store in a cool dark place.
Tip: Add oxygenators to keep the powder as dry as possible.
