Lindy's MARINATED Sundried Tomatoes
Narrabri’s own sundried tomato superstar!
Lindy McMicking remembers being gifted a cooking class close to twenty years ago. One of the recipes called for homemade marinated sun dried tomatoes, and Lindy got thinking about creating her own...
Lindy began making them for family and friends. Work colleagues started to buy jars. A friend suggested she take a stall at the North Sydney Farmer's Markets. And the rest is history. Lindy now sells thousands of jars every year, popping up at a myriad of food festivals and stores around the region.
'“I'm very passionate about Nosh and food and wine in the region. It's my home town and has a lot to offer.”
Lindy has been to all Nosh’s save for the first, where her late mother Joan intimated her product might not be 'professional enough' for the festival! She's since won best exhibitor for her Marinated Sun Dried Tomatoes. Lindy is not only a long standing exhibitor at Nosh Narrabri; she is also a dedicated committee member.
Be warned - Lindy’s tomatoes are addictive. Here’s a recent message from one of Lindy’s customers!
“Do you have some sort of delicious addictive ingredient that makes us eat and eat and eat these tomatoes? I opened the jar last night and by the end of the evening it was all gone! Empty! Have you had this issue before? The tomatoes disappeared!
“Congratulations on making such a delicious product. The next time we come to Narrabri I will need to buy a carton. Fortunately I have one more jar but I am going to be very frugal with this one. Definitely no sharing!”
