Learn how to cut cherry tomatoes in half with one simple step!
As a Stay at Home Mom, I’m in the kitchen A LOT. I’ve got three mouths to feed on a daily basis and not to mention their friends! So when it comes to snack time (we have them twice a day) they get to choose a fruit or a vegetable. If they choose fruit for morning snack time, they’ll get a vegetable at afternoon snack and vice versa.
I will say that Beanie girl LOVES cherry tomatoes. TT girl gets cankers pretty easily and tends to shy away from them. If you’ve been around for a good bit then you know Bubby hasn’t met a food he didn’t like so we are good with him. So when they ask for cherry tomatoes at snack time Momma has got to cut them in half; it’s the ONLY way they will eat them.
So instead of explaining to you how I cut cherry tomatoes, I figured it would be easier if I just made you a video.
How to cut cherry tomatoes quickly and easily
Now you may be a bit scared that you can’t do this without cutting the palm of your hand. If you don’t have confidence in your knife skills then you can use the top of a mason jar lid, a flat tupperware lid or even the bottom of a plate. Honestly, when I first started cutting like this I’d use a plate, but, I’m over it now and don’t have time to grab plates!
If you have a lot of cherry tomatoes this is a super quick way to get the job done. I know when I make my Italian Pasta Salad ain’t nobody got time to half each cherry tomato individually. If I didn’t have this kitchen tip for halving cherry tomatoes I’d probably never make it simply because it’s time consuming to cut a entire pint of cherry tomatoes in half!
Alright I’ve gotta get back to the kitchen! The kids are calling 🙂
