Well on Saturday managed to get a load of small cherry tomatoes that were at a very good price. Have managed to get 6 2 portion bags plus one mega back of small cherry tomatoes into the freezer. I use them up on pizzas, or to add to a soup base, or in chutneys or as part of a fry in the morning. Or cooked with larger and other varieties in a roasting tray in the oven with balsamic vinegar and brown sugar and then when caramelised served on warm hot toast. They have a multitude of uses if stored in their more natural format as that way you can utilise and get the maximum potential out of them. If you run out of tomato juice at Christms for Bloody Mary's for example just defrost some of the cherry tomatoes and put them through the juicer.
So in effect have 6 plus meals taken care of for during the winter months and what better way to perk a meal up than with sweet cherry tomatoes.
