These delightful Fermented Cherry Tomato Bombs will literally burst in your mouth with flavor. A little sour, a little fizzy, and a little dilly: they are very delicious. If you love tomatoes, you will definitely enjoy this fermented twist. Loaded with probiotics, they're even healthier than fresh tomatoes and are so easy to make.

After you're done fermenting the tomatoes, replace the Pickle Pipe with an air-tight lid (we like our Chalk Tops) and store them in the fridge. During the fermentation process, the Pickle Pipe may begin to swell: don't be alarmed! When food ferments, carbon dioxide is created, which is slowly released through the Pickle Pipe spout. Sometimes it can build up enough to make the Pickle Pipe balloon, but your jar is not at risk of exploding thanks to the one-way valve at the top of the spout.
These delicious tomatoes are great snacks, but can also be added to salads or used as a side dish. We mixed ours with pepper, goat cheese, and basil and spread it over a baguette for a nice appetizer (yah, it was pretty incredible).
