Cherry Tomatoes? What do I do with all of them?

8 posts in this topic

I have a few hundred cherry tomatoes and cannot possibly eat all of them at once. Can you make tomato sauce, stewed tomatoes, etc. with them?

Any recipes?

You'd have to peel all of them to make sauce or stewed tomatoes. I was wondering the same thing until my kids started eating them. I don't have many left.

I have been adding them into salsa, but there's too many of them. Maybe if I'm really, really bored, I'll peel them.

Also, I found the coolest thing. It's a canner that hooks up to the foodsaver vacuum sealer. No need to boil, etc. Works like a charm. I got it at FF for $7.

Gosh, when I was a little kid I ate them like grapes. But haven't had any in a long time.

lay them on a cookie sheet and freeze them. then bag them. we have done this with regular tomatoes, it might be worth a try.

We put them in a pan in the freezer until they are good and solid. Then we vacuum seal them and stick them back in the freezer. Trick is to have everything ready to seal them so they don't have a chance to thaw and get mushy when you seal the bags.

You can use them for salsa.Cut them in half and squeese out as much juice as you can.Then grind them up in a food processor.Add your seasonings,chopped peppers and onions.Work well and you don't have to peel them.

Might make good tomato jam. My aunt makes it and all she does is cook the tomatoes and add sugar and cinnamon sticks and reduce to jam consistency.
