Dried in the hot summer months of July and August, these tomatoes are then individually layered in glass jars and covered with extra virgin olive oil. It takes 14 to 15 kilos of fresh tomatoes to make just 1 kilo of sundried tomatoes. Most other sundried tomatoes use the cheaper and less flavorful seed oil; however, the Mahjoubs’ decision to use olive oil means that once the tomatoes are gone, there is still a jar of flavored olive oil to enjoy. As with all of the Mahjoub products, this is produced using traditional farming methods with no additives or artificial processes. This product is organic.
