Preserving Summer's Last Bounty of Tomatoes

How do you preserve the great taste of ripe summer homegrown tomatoes? 

Earlier this week, my housekeepers, Enma and Sanu, picked the last of the season's cherry tomatoes. We had trays and trays of colorful and delicious fruits! I decided to roast them and store them in airtight containers in the freezer - it's an easy way to preserve warm-weather produce, so it can be enjoyed year-round. And preparing cherry tomatoes for roasting is so easy to do - just clean them, drizzle them with olive oil, add salt, pepper, and my "secret" ingredient, and then let them cook in the oven at low heat for several hours. 

Enjoy these photos of the process.
