Alessi Sun-Dried Tomatoes in Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Pot roast in the oven, a couple hours are free to work on lasagna. These tomatoes are a primary ingredient in that lasagna.

I wonder why these tomatoes have so much sodium? They must be salted as part of the drying process. The ingredients say: sun dried tomatoes, olive oil, salt, black pepper, sweet marjoram, basil, sulfites added.

Sun-dried tomatoes look trippy. And they are surprisingly firm, sort of like jerky, even though they are soaking in oil.

Alessi Sundried Tomatoes in Extra Virgin Olive Oil available in the pasta or ethnic aisle of Ralph's for $6.69/7 oz jar.
