Who loves cherry tomatoes? I don’t!

I’m not a huge fan of cherry tomatoes. I often find them a bit tangy in salads. However, my husband adores them, so I’m gradually developing a taste. On the other hand, when tomatoes are cooked, their flavor transforms completely. Cooking eliminates the acidity, and roasting in the oven makes them tender and sweet. With a touch of garlic and thyme, it’s a delightful combination. I absolutely love preparing this cherry tomato soup recipe because it’s incredibly simple. We pop the tomatoes in the oven and blend it all together. Adding some sautéed onions enhances the experience. And for those who love a little extra, top it off with some crispy croutons.”

What is the best way to preserve cherry tomatoes?

Preserving cherry tomatoes allows you to enjoy their flavors beyond the growing season. Here are a couple of effective methods:

  • Freezing: Wash and dry the cherry tomatoes. Place them on a baking sheet in a single layer and freeze until firm. Transfer the frozen tomatoes to airtight containers or freezer bags. Use them in cooked dishes like sauces and stews.
  • Oven-Dried Tomatoes: Halve the tomatoes, toss them in olive oil, salt, and herbs, and arrange them on a baking sheet. Slowly dry them in a low oven (around 200°F or 95°C) for several hours until they’re semi-dried. Store them in a jar covered with olive oil.
