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 (to make cherry tomato sauce), beef (to make beef tomato sauce )and roma (to make tomato soup and sun-dried tomatoes) varieties. I wanted to try something new with them so I threw them in the slow cooker and hoped for delicious results!

You can totally eat these Slow Cooker Cherry Tomatoes with a spoon and I won’t be angry with you. In fact, I do it quite often! They make a delicious side dish! Alternatively you can serve them over pasta or rice. If you want to turn them into a more creamy tomato sauce then throw them in your food processor for a few seconds. I also love using them in lasagna and chili.
You can easily double or triple the recipe if you have a large cherry tomato harvest. You can freeze or can them for later usage too!
