Too many cherry tomatoes! What to do?!

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
All our cherry tomatoes are starting to turn - at once! We have too many to browse on and for eating right away.

Any ideas as to what to do with them? I don't have a dehydrator. But I do freeze and can. Just seems a shame to can or freeze cherry toms. No? And yes, I can find them homes if need be. I just thought I'd try to figure a way to put them up somehow.

Any ideas?

cut in half - baking sheet with olive oil and a bit of salt - dry them into mini SDTs in the oven on a lowest setting.

Yum! : How long do they usually take to cook?

I do this too but my fav is to put whole cheery toms in a shallow baking dish,drizzle with a a fair amount of olive oil,sea salt,pepper,parmesan and fresh basil.Bake at 400 for 30 minutes,leave to cool,put in a jar and use as a spread.This is delish on ciabatta with salami and provolone.

This is what i do too, but i add garlic, and you can serve hot over roasted chicken, or on angel hair.
I have been mixing whatever other veggies i get too usually zucchini and eggplant. sooo yummy!!!

I roast the tomatoes like this too & they freeze very well. When I thaw them, sometimes I put them on sandwiches or pasta, or sometime puree them and make a pasta sauce like that (throw in a block of frozen pesto for taste of summer in January!). I love them like this - they can be used so many ways.
