    Default Preserving the glut

    To preserve my allotment's glut of baby plum and cherry tomatoes I slow roast them in olive oil and balsamic vinegar with a little sugar and ground black pepper before freezing. Then we use them throughout the year in pasta dishes, ratatouille, etc. They caramelise, the flavours intensify and are like grown-up sweets

    I was planning to submit it for the September Competition (as this is something I do every September) but was too late

    Incidentally I never sow tomatoes anymore as they germinate naturally all over my allotment in the home-made compost I add to the raised beds and all originate from some bought at LIDL years ago.


    Cheers,
    John
