Sundried tomatoes are ripe tomatoes left to dry in the sun, resulting in a sweet, more concentrated and intense flavour. This traditional method of preserving tomatoes has been used for centuries in Mediterranean countries, particularly in Italy where they are known as 'pomodori secchi' (translates to 'dry tomatoes'). These little bursts of flavour add depth and richness to any dish, making them a popular ingredient in Italian cuisine.

The addition of sundried tomatoes to pesto sauce adds a unique twist to this traditional recipe, creating a rich and robust flavour profile that pairs well with various dishes.
