What to do with ultra-salty dried tomatoes?

everybodyever | Feb 4, 2010 09:08 AM

My sister brought me a bag of "pomodori secchi 'alla contadina'" (dried tomatoes, peasant-style) from Italy a few months ago. The problem: They're inedibly salty, even after I've soaked in hot water and vinegar as per the bag's instructions. Any ideas for what else I can do to get some of that salt out, or for what I could make with them where the salt wouldn't be such a problem? Thanks!
