"As a huge lover of all tomato products, I was skeptical of what a powdered tomato could do. This exceeded ALL expectations! I use it to thicken a homemade stew, soup, or spaghetti sauce. If I'm desperate for salsa and there are no decent tomatoes to be had, I thicken the salsa and add flavor with the powdered stuff. I have even made tomato juice - I had to spike it with added salt and lemon juice, but it was very good. I've made barbecue sauce. I've made a "sundried tomato" style of salad dressing. I've used it with taco seasoning to give a richer flavor to my taco meat... My kitchen will never be without it."
