Fresh: Meilin’s Cherry Tomatoes

At our recent July 4th celebration, the Chengs came to join us (sans Julian). They brought fresh fruits and their no-fuss easy cleanup granita machine. In the happy frenzy of preparations at our small kitchen, Meilin handed me a small bag of cherry tomatoes, still with stems and all.

“These are from my garden. They’re really sweet. You should keep some for your salads.”

I kept all of it for myself. I had enough tomatoes for the day. So, I’m a little indulgent about this one thing. Why not?

I didn’t get around to washing and using the ripe red cherries until the weekend. While I was washing and separating the stems, I popped some in my mouth. Ooh! Delish! Sweet, flavorful, pure, and juicy. My definition of fresh!

  1. Delicious home grown tomatoes. Yummy! I remember how happy I was when my dad brings me to our back yard garden for vegetable harvesting. Belated 4th of July. Looks like you had a wonderful time. Have a blessed day my friend.

  2. they’re like candy. so sweet and perfectly sized. i just pickled a pint of them. not sure how they’ll taste but it would be nice to have a little taste of summer in January. I say this even as i am cursing the Virginia summer and wishing it was January. 87 degrees but 89% humidity so the heat index is over 100. very unpleasant. i’d rather have 2 feet of snow. I’m ashamed to admit that i whine my way through summer here.

  5. I’m allergic to them, but I can grow the heck out of them.
