There is nothing like the sweet juicy fresh cherry tomatoes of summer. When I get a bumper crop, I like to make a quick sauce and freeze it in small serving sizes. It can become a sauce for shakshuka at breakfast, sandwich spread at lunch, brie topper...Cool, cover, and store in refrigerator up to 1 week.
