"Million Bells" cherry tomatoes pretty much live up to their name. There are SCADS of 'em! And since we (for some reason I am not exactly sure of, mind you I was about to give birth -- well, not literally RIGHT AWAY but within a short period of time and my mind was a little fuzzy :)...) purchased four of these delightful plants for our garden - or was it six, now I really can't remember that either! - we had A LOT of cherry tomatoes.
And note -- eating too many cherry tomatoes in one day is BAD for the system ;).
We've figured that out two years in a row!
So, what to do? Freeze 'em. Wash em up and freeze 'em whole. I found two recipes online that allows you to make homemade tomato soup from these delicious little morsels - and the best part is, no peeling of skins. Just cook 'em up, puree the whole lot and strain it if you don't like the seeds ;).
YUMMY! With fresh baked biscuits, these were fun recipes to try.
A little reminder of summer and warm days to come :).
Of course I still have some carrots and beets that never made it into the house and are now a frozen lump in the garage, but there's always next year!
