I managed to pick up a large package of on-the-stem cherry tomatoes the other day. They were past their sell-by date but they looked okay – not fuzzy or rotten. When I opened the package, the tomatoes felt just slightly soft, so I fired up the oven to 200C, sliced the tomatoes in half, drizzled some olive oil on the tomatoes, sprinkled a bit of flaked salt on top with some chopped garlic and fresh oregano, and roasted them for about 4-minutes.
Totally delicious served with some sourdough bread to mop up the juices, and it cost less than £1 for two servings. Buying past the sell-by-date produce is a good way to save a bit of money!
