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.

    • Here's number 3 for the year! Not a bad find for a couple hours after work.  It was so fresh it still had wet blood on the base.
    • East wind is the worst...!! Bad juju. Always means a storm. Gonna have an East one tomorrow......and my barometer is already headin' down, in time for the 6-8" of big snow tomorrow. Watch it plummet before a big summer storm, or rise into the 30's on those warming, clear days. I've always watched the winds and barometer since I was a kid (got into the weather thing in "science class") , you can do better yourself than the forecasters do. It's easy and fun, IMO. Some fun facts:   http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2010/10/27/lowest-barometer-reading-ever-in-minnesota/
    • I guess I never associated a north wind wind lower pressure. Or a south wind with higher pressure.  Learn something new everyday
    • I watch when it drops below 29.5 Hg on down (29.0 Hg or mb; millibars) or when it swings up past 30.0 mb. That's my reference for "highs" or "lows" on my Barometer. Remember to adjust yours to your local Wx reading, they have a slot shaft in the back of the meter for that. I  love my old dial Aneroid barometer.  They last forever, too.  Mines kicking about 35 years... (That's not mine, pic is for low and high reference...)    
    • Thanks Rebel, very good answer.  I've been keeping track of the pressure for a week, now. 
    • Hey Rebel, what do you consider low and high pressure?  Perhaps a stupid question, but I just got a weather station so now I can start tracking barometric pressure. Right now the numbers don't mean much to me, been around 28-29% in the south metro the past few day and I don't know if that's low, high or middle.
    • Low pressure signals a front moving in, (Bad weather, wind may be  from the east or north) which usually puts them "on the feed", can have some hot and fast action. Likewise, a swing in the other direction, a high pressure system , (wind from the west or south) which signals clear skies and sunny weather, may do the same. The key to me, anyway, seems to be hitting it just as either front moves in. An extended low or long high may result in poor fishing. Remember the old adage, which also has to so with the pressure: "Wind from the east; fish bite the least...wind from the north , the fisherman goes not forth, wind from the south, blows the bait in the fish's mouth; wind from the west, is when the fishing is best". 
    • Those trumpers sure know how to keep things classy.
    • Is it true, the lower the pressure, the bite gets hot? Or the higher the barometric pressure the fish slow down on biting?
