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.

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
