Freezing Cherry Tomatoes
On November 15, I was able to get in one last harvest of cherry tomatoes. The problem was everyone was burned out on eating tomatoes for the moment. I decided to try something new. I froze them. I did not know how to go about freezing them, but after a quick Google search, I learned how.
The most important point posted online by multiple bloggers was to space out the tomatoes on a baking sheet or in a pan when freezing. This prevents them from sticking together and allows you to get the amount you need later. I used a small glass dish and froze them in small batches. I have two nine-year-old sons and a husband who eat a lot, so there is not much room in my freezer.
Here they are hours later after they were frozen. They look the same but they feel hard as a rock. You can hear them clinking around in the short video below.
I plan to use them when I make pasta during the winter. When I use them, I will be sure to write another blog post about it.
Stay safe, wash your hands, and wear a mask!
