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.

    • We had our permy site for 14 years. It was a blast the first 10. Neighbors changed, other things changed. We got tired of it and finally had enough. It was getting so with the yearly fee we felt we needed to be out there every weekend.   I still fish the lake in the fall but don't miss it. Now we can go to other places to do something different. With that said I'd do it all over again.    
    •   Well after inspecting, I'm really starting to lean that the blade mounts are bent. I can't find any pictures or anything......so I'm not sure. If these just take a normal shaver blade.....then they gotta be bent.....Anyone have any insite?
    • On June 30 I sent the dnr an email this is their response, "Hello Rob,
      The hunting regs will be out the last week in July"
    • I agree about the lodge. After gear and any snow it can become a heavy pull. The lodge fit in my 1500 chevy silverado (6.5 ft box) as long a you put the flat end of the tub to the front and when closing the tailgate you had to pick up the end of the sled just a little for the gate to close. 
    • When the heck do they issue them? Seems to be getting late. I'd like to know what kind of slaughterhouse Zone 1 will be, or if they are going to play it smart and continue being a bit conservative 
    • Definitely plan on doing some pulling by hand ealry ice so I'm thinking the cabin it is then. Thanks for the tips and info on the otters and equipment it's been a very big help!
    • Yep, I've contacted 4 or 5 campgrounds in the last couple of days. One has gotten back to me, the rest have not yet.   We will be up that way over the Labor Day holiday so we can check out a few campgrounds while we are there. We actually checked out 2 or 3 while we were up there last year at that time.   I'm not too sure if we are ready to take the plunge yet or not but we are close.
    •   If you are start talking to the owners of the campgrounds now about letting you know when there may be an opening. Ours fills up during the summer but at the end of the season the owners will start hearing about those that will be moving out at the end of the year. Lot's of relatives will tell their families as soon as they hear someone is moving out. Good Luck.
    • Thanks guys. Looks like there are a few lakes to checkout.
