Plan to preserve cherry tomatoes in daily batches.

  • These little bites of summer are often the first tomatoes to begin ripening.
  • And, they may last ones to ripen later in fall too.
  • So, you may find yourself gathering a pint or two everyday.
  • And, if you can’t eat them all, don’t let any go to waste.
  • Instead, keep filling up your freezer bags day by day.

What will you need to put these up for winter easily?

  • A freezer bag, preferably a zipper bag.
  • And, a marker to label the bag.
  • Plus, your cherry tomatoes.
  • And, a freezer to put them in.

And, what are the steps to freeze cherry tomatoes?

  • Harvest ripe fruits.
  • Clean & destem your cherry tomatoes.
  • Write the date & name of the crop on your freezer bag.
  • Place clean, whole fruits into a zipper freezer bag.
  • Place freezer bag of fruits in freezer.
  • And, if you don’t fill the freezer bag with your first harvest, you can add more cherries each day until the bag is full.
  • But, don’t smoosh the bag of fresh fruits into a crammed freezer.
  • That’s because they’ll turn into mush.
  • But, once they’re hard like marbles, a little smooshing is okay.
