Backyard Bounty: Cherry Tomatoes

We have the most delicious cherry tomatoes growing in our backyard.  It is so exciting to find the ripe red tomatoes and pick them.  They taste better than anything I've ever bought from the store.  The tomatoes are so juicy and burst with flavour in your mouth.  It is sweet and a little salty at the same time.

These tiny red tomatoes are the perfect size to pop in your mouth.  It's a healthy snack you can feel good about eating since one cup is only 27 calories and is full of vitamins A, C and E. Tomatoes get their bright red colour from the antioxidant, lycopene, which fights free radicals linked to cancer.

All you have to do is pick, wash, eat and enjoy!

Thanks to your dad's gardening - we love'm!
This year seems abundant and sweet too. Should keep this variety as it seems like a country variety (naattu kaai and not genetically modified).
