Tomatoes!

I've never grown tomatoes before as we have duck which peck away at anything I try to grow. This year I hit upon the brainwave of putting them in hanging baskets, brilliant except that now we are eating tomatoes with every meal as we have TONS! Any ideas what to do with them....I have a mixture of yellow & red!
Thanks..Novice Gardener Jaki x

As i don't like them don't grow them , but have heard that you can slow roast them and use as sun-dried toms.

Tomatoes

When someone asks this question, someone would normally say... make soup with them. They would make lovely soup (because they sweet), but your baby cherry tomatoes are far too lovely to make into soup in my humble opinion. I would just remove them from the plant on the whole vine if possible and then, as Tilly has said, put them in a roasting tin, drizzle with olive oil and balsamic vinegar (not a lot cos you have a fussy one there... just a dash to see if he likes it)... and then roast them in the oven and serve as a vegetable. You could add some torn basil leaves when you serve them? They don't need long of course.

I also have a simple recipe for chicken breasts that are roasted with baby tomatoes... I'll hunt it out and send it.

Ah, Tilly's are slow roasted like sun dried. I'm just suggesting roasting them on the vine, whole, in the oven.

I've now put it in my profile. It's a very simple thing really... but we enjoyed the combination of flavours. It's called Chicken and Chorizo Bake but it does suggest 6 cherry tomatoes per person and so it should use a few for you. The recipe lists the ingredients for one person for some reason, but you can adjust them accordingly of course. Ooop, hope you spotted that Jaki? (Hangs her head in shame).

Salads

We eat tons of homegrown tomatoes in our salads in the summer. They are also good in Tabbouleh, and salsa. Homemade salsa is tasty. I've heard you can rinse, and freeze the cherry tomatoes, and they turn out fab but I just can't see how and I've not tried it myself yet.
