Express dried tomatoes

Dried tomatoes are irreplaceable in some recipes. But when one day you wake up realizing that you cannot really get them in any place within eighty km, you tuck up your sleeves and start producing them on your own.  Which was the case in Jordanian town of Irbid when I used to stay there.
Marta, my flatmate shared with me this recipe for express dried tomatoes and guess what – I loved it.
