Like the oven-dried fruit, this technique concentrates the flavors and sugars of tomatoes by getting rid of a lot of the irrigation water. They will never be as good as the tomatoes grown in the volcanic soils outside of Naples where the whole plant, full of ripe tomatoes, is pulled up and hung upside-down on a south-facing wall for a few days. But these come close.
