Rainy days and Sundays always get me down when I can not garden!

Pickled Cherry Tomatoes


These tasties are a cherry that looks like a small plum.  Indeterminate, high yielding hybrid produces clusters of grape looking fruit.  I like them because they are sweet, juicy and delicious, but with the "meatiness" of a plum. 


Super easy with no canning experience needed!  A "brine" solution is used to "pickle" or preserve the tomatoes.  Allow 2+ days for the flavor to develop and for the tomatoes to pickle.  Since these are not prepared for storage using a water bath or pressure canning method, they need to be kept in the refrigerator.  We are looking forward to trying these with some crusty bread, a good cheese, and a Bloody Mary!
