If you haven’t noticed from my past few recipes, I’m kinda obsessed with my slow cooker right now.   With a new baby and a garden in full harvest our slow cooker has been saving us (and my sanity!).   August and September is always tomato season and we’re left with baskets filled with beautiful tomatoes, ranging from cherry, beef and roma varieties.   My favorite cherry tomato recipe is this creamy sauce, but I wanted to try something new with them so I threw them in the slow cooker and hoped for delicious results!

  • AND….. this is how I discovered YOU and your wonderful life to begin with ?
    It was the end of summer, I had a mere three VOLUNTEER cherry tomato plants that were overproducing tomatoes every day. If I didn’t own them myself, I would have thought the person telling the “Death-by-Tomatoes” story was made up. I couldn’t give them away because I live in Vermont & everybody here gardens— droves of people, daily, begging to please take the over abundance of their bounty. Even food banks are doing the “oh, thanks, but, no thanks” of offerings.
    So, I had containers of cherry tomatoes & no homes for them. I googled “tomato sauce made from cherry tomatoes”. Voìla!! Suddenly, there you were… a recipe, a story beyond my comprehension, and, a means to follow along in your innovative life. So, whenever you post ANY cherry tomato recipe, it makes me smile in remberance ?
    This is a whole different year… Again, I have (3) volunteer cherry tomato plants & I’m surrounded, once again. So, dear Mama Gardener, I shall be trying this. My slow cooker has nothing else to do with itself at the moment.

    • Sue, as always, your comment absolutely makes my day! <3 I'm so happy you enjoy the cherry tomato sauce and I hope you equally like this slow cooker recipe! Have a wonderful week!

      • Well, Pam… you & your Matthew are bright & shining stars in this world full of people who don’t make their days on earth count.
        That little gorgeous “sprout” that the two of you grew is taking lots of your time (as well she should). Selfishly, I am missing your more frequent trips to your garden paradise, but first things first & her growing certainly takes priority over everything else? In fact, I don’t know how you’re doing all that you’re doing.
        It’s important that you know, that you bring joy to people… your story is inspiring, your talent is enviable, your sense of fun is contagious. And, those of us who have found your blog are the lucky recipients of being able to ride along on your journey (Kind of like “peeping Toms”… but in a non-creepy way!)

  • Wow, these sound amazing. But, can you really not peel them like that? The skins are okay? I love stewed tom’s, so I’m willing to try this and see for myself!

  • Hi! Visiting and pinning from the Pinterest parties. I’m really excited about this idea. It combines two of my LOVES: tomatoes & the slow cooker. 🙂

  • Sounds delicious. I’m the only one in my family who likes cooked tomatoes. Which is fine with me because it means I get to eat them all. 🙂 I would love for you to stop by my blog Monday and link your tomato recipe and anything else you’ve been working on to my More the Merrier Monday link party! (first one will be this coming Monday the 16th!) diyhshp.blogspot.com
