  THEME: A Sauce For All Occasions  

cherry tomatoesThis week features a delightful pop of summer with frozen cherry tomatoes and strawberries. The cherry tomatoes are a super versatile frozen item that can work in a lot of ways. While we love tossing them in an omelet or soup, our favorite recipe is sweet tomato sauce. This is a slow(ish)-roasted version of stove-top tomato sauce that will work with a bunch of different dishes. We’ve heard it’s not obvious how to prepare these gems of summertime after they’ve been frozen. The trick is to use them like canned tomatoes to get that sweet tomato base flavor in your dishes. The roasted cherry tomato sauce below is great because it’s a one baking pan deal (less fuss, less muss, go us!). You'll want to have it with everything. Add it into your frittata recipe, substitute it for fresh bruschetta until the growing season starts back up, of course put it on pasta, and for an extra kid friendly approach make sloppy joes! This tomato sauce can go in a jar in the fridge for a couple of days, and come in handy for your mid-week meatloaf or weekend brunch of eggs in purgatory (dramatic name for a delicious dish).
Roasted Cherry-Tomato Sauce (2 cups)
Ingredients: 1 bag frozen cherry tomatoes, 3 cloves smashed garlic, 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, 2 tbs balsamic vinegar, 1 tbs fresh thyme, 2 tsp packed light-brown sugar, 1 tsp coarse salt.
Directions: Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Mix together tomatoes and garlic in a nonreactive 9-by-13-inch baking dish. Whisk together oil, vinegar, thyme, brown sugar, and salt in a bowl. Drizzle over tomato mixture. Bake until tomatoes are softened and caramelized, start checking around a half hour. Serve warm or at room temperature. Sauce can be stored in refrigerator up to 5 days; let cool before storing.
Pulling it all together
To cook through almost the whole bag in one shot, try this chili recipe with a delicious brown sugar element that will pair perfectly with some added cubed sweet potato. Sub the dandelion for kale!

Frozen Cherry Tomatoes
Hepworth Farms (CO)

Frozen cherry tomatoes should be thawed and treated as you would a canned tomato, rather than as a fresh tomato. Thaw in the fridge for a few hours, then fold into pasta or toss with a little olive oil and some basil & bake (at around 400 degrees).
