100's of cherry tomatoes!! What to do with them?

glendeb, Mar 10, 2:07am
We have 100's of cherry tomatoes ready right NOW! Is it acceptable to chop them up and freeze them for later in the year like I do with normal tomatoes? Or would they be too sweet to use in the likes of lasagne etc?

What else can I do with them? Thanks for any advice :)

I just leave them whole and free flow freeze them on trays then put into snaplock bags to use in winter.

How about drying them and storing in oil. You could have them with ante pasta AND use them in stew and sauces as well.

I like both of those ideas! Yummo! Thanks so much.

Make a salad. I use Jamies Mothership tomato salad recipe. Brilliant.

I have frozen them and because they are small I just grab a handful out when I am making a pasta dish or spag bog and put them into the dish whole. They thaw out and cook but stay whole and burst flavour when you bite into them - husband loves them this way.

I simply eat them ... 50 will make a salad if you halve them ...

hee hee hee. . winnie... that was my first thought too. . and I laughed at your comment to fisher in that thread... . lol

could you make a relish - and leave them whole, so you can see that it is the cherry toms that you make the relish from?
