Cherry Tomatoes, Silverberry and Saving Seed  

In this episode we talk about foraged silverberries, cherry tomatoes, saving seeds, and whether fall is the best time for planting. Ellen and C.L. end with a question from Jenna about possible uses for carrot tops.

Cherry tomatoes: Remove stems and stem-end and roast them for 30 to 45 minutes at 400 degrees on a baking pan that’s coated with olive oil. Okay to let caramelize a little bit. Then you can use them in several ways:
Toss as is with olive oil, garlic and fresh basil and serve with pasta.
Cool them, freeze on a cookie sheet lined with waxed paper then bag for future
Put in food processor with roasted garlic and herbs of your choice – blend till smooth.
Top a pizza or flatbread with them.

Silverberry – on autumn olive trees, aka Elaeagnus umbellata.

Place cherry tomatoes on a pizza! Here with nasturtium flowers too.

One way to save seeds is to use small organza bags over the pods as they mature. These are sold as gift bags, but are useful for seed saving.
