How do you cut your cherry tomatoes?
I used to do them one or two at a time, but then I started using my hand, laying it flat on top of 10 or so tomatoes, and then cutting them laterally all at once. Sometimes it didn't work if the tomatoes varied in size too much or -- as one time happened -- my thumb pad got in the way.
Anyhow, I heard that our favorite TV host, Rachael Ray, has been popularizing this method where you use two food container covers to help slice the tomatoes safely up the middle. The link below is just an example of the tip. I'm sure others have done it long before Ms. Ray.
Cutting Cherry Tomatoes
I guess that lid thing is safer, but I still use my hand. I'm too lazy to get lids. I just do a few tomatoes at a time, and if they are all uniform in size, I do more.
