"Both. But the problem is that self sewn toms can be the wee ones which are so hard to harvest and use. Taste great though-- but also present a drying challenge. But I get self sewn tomatoes growing everywhere they can find a niche."

"Dave, are your Tommy Toes a variety that you replant each year, or they, like mine, just what comes up in the garden? "

"I harvested another lot of Tommy Toes today...with lots more to come. I don't like Passata so much and my freezer is almost full with other comestibles. So I'm thinking of taking the space saving route by  drying and dipping…"

"Taste tested by the family, I think I can say it was successful. However, way too much oil - didn't pack them tightly enough. No problem, though - there are always more little tomatoes coming on...and on...and on......"

"Great info guys, I always put my Tommy Toes on a try in the freezer before putting into bags or a Glass Box, you can now also get Stainless Steel, Glass Box type jars that are completely airtight."

"Here's my lame view - for what it is worth.   Drying means less chance of bacteria.  After-all, little moisture (but still some left). Oil cuts off the air and stops aerobic bacteria as well.  Combined with drying, you are…"

"Thanks so much, Dave - that is really helpful. I think I'll go the Balsamic vinegar route, although dipping my teeny bits of dried tomato in the vinegar individually could become even more tiresome than cutting the little dears in half in the…"

Dave Riley commented on Barbara Tealby's blog post Dried Tomatoes in oil
"Yes I dried them and oiled them in storage jars. I will again too -- because of the taste. I found they needed a lot of drying to work in oil. Refrigeration is OK as in the jars you can fit a lot of toms. How long? For as long as the oil drowns…"

Dried Tomatoes in oil

I just dried a pile of cherry tomato halves in the dehydrator (thanks, Andy). I'm thinking of storing them in oil in the fridge. Has anyone else done this, and if so, how long did you keep them for? I have seen all sorts of advice on the web - some contradictory- and am unsure if this is worth doing. An alternative is to just dry them till they are completely desiccated and grind them to a powder as has been suggested here before. Any advice gratefully accepted.See More

Profile Information

About me:
I live on a 900sq m block. The house is biggish, as we had a big family, most of whom have left home. The gardens were more or less tacked on by the previous owners after the house and various landscaping features were finished, so no chance to do the permaculture thing, but gradually a food garden is taking shape. My background is in revegetation, volunteer management, and growing and selling local native plants, but I am a total convert to the idea of producing as much of our own food as possible. Fruit trees - in ground and in pots - are a particular enthusiasm, and I like to preserve my own and purchased produce.
I am currently involved with the following community gardens and groups:
Rode-Chermside garden club
I am interested in:
Permaculture, growing my own food, preserving the produce. I would like to see other peoples' gardens, and
join in discussions to learn as much as possible about the ins and outs of growing food. Happy to share bits and pieces of whatever I've got growing, and whatever knowledge I have accumulated over the years.
I can offer (you can't offer too much or too little - we don't mind)
Community Involvement
What I am looking for:
Information, Community Involvement

Mandarins, anyone?

Posted on July 7, 2021 at 10:12 3 Comments

We clean-picked our mandarin tree this morning, and have three boxes of mandarins - all ripe - they wouldn't hang on the tree much longer. 

If anyone would like some, please let me know. I can't hang on to them for long, as they are quite ripe. 

Juicers, anyone?

Posted on June 16, 2021 at 7:47 6 Comments

I'm looking at buying a juicer - for apples, pineapples, etc. Does anyone have one they can recommend (or specifically NOT recommend)? Mid price range is good.

Buy Australian?

The contents of the new you-beaut ring-pull cans of Carnation Evaporated Milk seemed to me to be a bit runnier than in the old types, so I had a look on the side of the can. to see if they'd changed the concentration. Well, no indication as to whether they had or they hadn't, but what I did see was 'MADE IN MEXICO". Had a bit of a fossick around on the web to see if I could find evaporated milk made in Australia, but all I could find was stuff made in Lithuania. Surely we can do better than…
