Ruptured Hyphen

Am I the last English speaker on this planet who reads “sundried tomatoes” as “mixed tomatoes?”

People!  Please!  Hyphen!  Sun-dash-dried . . . dried-by-the-sun!  Sundried reads as “to have made sundry” and “sundry” means “miscellaneous, mixed stuff.”

Sundried!  PAH!  Sun-dried!

Thanks.

    I thought “sundry” was a noun, as in:

    There was a sundry of tomatoes available.

    Only if sundry is a verb could you have something “sundried.”
