Oven-Roasted Cherry Tomatoes — 11 Comments

  1. Those tomatoes look soooo good. I am hoping just to get enough this year for salads, anything else would be a bonus. Life would certainly be sad without the beloved tomato!

  2. I’ve had tomatoe plants planted in the greenhouse since late May. Still no tomatoes.
    I love your prep and roasting method. So simple and easy. Perfect. Now I just need the tomatoes …

  3. I do this. Well, I add the salt. Good on Sandwiches in the winter. I picked and ate my first one straight from the vine yesterday, but I won’t have an more for a little while yet.

  4. Yeah, well I planted one tomato plant this year … I got one tomato … since we don’t have any tv, cable or whatever maybe it’s a good thing … no, I wish I had as many as you’ve got.

  5. Clever girl! I don’t have any tomato plants this year but I could purchase lots of cherry tomatoes at the farmer’s market and process them for the winter.

  6. I know what you mean. I misread how much I was supposed to plant for 2 people, and instead planted enough for 4. Now you’ve given me ideas on how to freeze! I love cooking tomatoes but the little cherries are so good garden fresh, no? They’re so sweet, it’s like candy.

  7. You peeled the tomatoes?!
    (It’s my feeling your thinking is right about how many plants in the garden. If there were only two, there’d be no sense of competition between the plants. They’d get all complacent. But four… then they can race. They can feel like if they produce bigger, more, better fruit, there will be a prize.)

  8. Ina, once cherry tomatoes get started they can’t seem to quit – maybe you’ll be lucky!
    Christine, mine seemed to take forever – then one day they exploded
    LeAnn, sandwiches, yeah, I could definitely see that.A bit of summer!
    Tanna, you coud do it while watching the sun set….Sorry about your tomato
    Zoomie, they should be cheap…. they go so crazy!
    Val, that’s the nice thing about working in the garden now – lunch from the vines!
    Nirmala, they are… and I eat so many…. but they got away from me and I had to do something!
    Thanks, Kirsten….
    Elizabeth, yes, I peeled them. If one (me) is going to complain about the tough skins (not on fresh tomatoes) one must peel. My plants are anything but complacent!

  9. Aha. Well that’s alright then. I know that one (me) would complain much more loudly about peeling the tomatoes than about encountering tough skins.
    Katie is right, Ina. (Of course, she’s right.) We once had a cherry tomato plant (that seeded itself from our compost that we scattered) grow high up into our neighbour’s evergreen tree. We got zillions of tomatoes from that plant and so did the birds and squirrels from the parts of the plant that were too high for us to reach.
    Why were there cherry tomato seeds in the compost? From the year before when I had ripped one out because it was taking over the garden triffid-style.
