Using Cherry Tomatoes

A colander of cherry tomatoes.We planted tomato seed in our little green house and had some beautiful plants. We thought we had purchased Better Boy seeds and I gave away gobs of plants telling my friends that they were Better Boy tomato plants.


To our disappointment they turned out to be cherry tomatoes and Banana tomatoes. I had to make calls and express my regrets.

Now, they are getting ripe and I plan to make tomato juice and put it in the freezer. I am enjoying snacking on these sweet cherry tomatoes.

The skins are tough so I have to remove that from my mouth after chewing on it.

I haven't had a lot of experience with cherry tomatoes and I just discovered an easier way to eat them. I bite on the stem end and squeeze it like I do when eating Scuppernong grapes.

Actually some of them even taste like grapes. What I thought was a failure has turned out to be a good thing.

Gobs? You're a country girl, all right! Only city girls said 'scads'.

I was just thinking. Back when I did a bit of canning, I scalded my tomatoes for about half a minute in boiling water and then plunged them in ice water. The skin almost fell off by itself.


If you're going to prepare as much as a bowl full for salads or whatever, you might want to try peeling them this way.
