How to halve a punnet of cherry tomatoes at once
Cherry tomatoes add a delicious splash of flavour and colour to many dishes and are delicious in salads but slicing them in half is really time-consuming if you have to do it one at a time. Good news, you don’t with this handy little kitchen hack.
Using two plastic lids (Tupperware or similar) or two small plates that are the same size, place the cherry tomatoes on one of the lids or plates. Now, put the other lid or plate on top to sandwich them inside. Holding the lid down (not so hard that you squash the tomatoes though), grab a knife and cut through all of them at once. Pull off the lid, and all your cherry tomatoes will be sliced neatly and cleanly.
