You may have used chopped cherry tomatoes in a lacto-fermented salsa or relish, but if you haven’t tried fermenting whole cherry tomatoes, you are in for a real treat. When whole cherry tomatoes are fermented they take on a fizz that many fermented foods are known for. After plucking one of these fermented tomatoes from a jar and putting it into your mouth, you will experience a fizzy popping sensation!
