Preserving Cherry Tomatoes

Growing your own food sometimes sees a bountiful harvest of one crop. A lot of precision in timing is required for successive planting. A skill I am still working on. Another way around it is to learn preservation, so as to have access to a veggie when you don't have a harvest.
Here are two ways of preserving cherry tomatoes.

1. Freezing
  • Place the tomatoes on a plate and freeze them.
  • Once they have frozen, they will be like marbles.
  • Bag them in zip lock for future use.

2. Sun Dry
  • Bruise the tomatoes, add Himalayan salt, garlic powder, olive oil and mix well.
  • Leve them to sun dry till brittle.
  • Preserve in a glass bottle.

  • Cut the fish into required size.
  • Marinate with salt, and ginger garlic paste.
  • Leave aside for 5 minutes
  • Coat with dried mint and thyme.
  • Baste oil.
  • Set air fryer to 160 for 10 minutes.
  • Turn over after 5 minutes.

  • Enjoy!
