Garden Pearl cherry tomatoes

Picked the last of the cherry toms today, we got about 4lb of tomato, i was hoping to mix them with some of the Amish paste and make soup, but i have been over ruled!! Maggie has come across a recipe to slowly roast them in the oven, which will preserve them, like sun dried tomatoes! looking forward to the outcome of Maggie's project, all will be reveled tomorrow afternoon! we will keep you informed........................

What a good idea drying them. Make sure Maggie lets us in on her recipe, as usual. Good to have you back, Chili.

Feel like I can reach out and take one of those little tomatoes! and your close up photos of bugs are great.

They look so yummy.  Your bug photos are excellent.  What do you do for a living as photography is something you could definately do.

what a bounty, surely you have enough there to do a bit of both :O).

OK, I am going to be the odd man out. I hate sun dried tomatoes so to me that would be a total waste of 4 lbs of tomatoes which could be pureed, turned into soup, etc etc. You have the right idea Gismo, do both! (Roast 1 tomato and puree the rest!! :) )
