How To Thaw Frozen Cherry Tomatoes Over The Stove
Here’s another short way to thaw frozen cherry tomatoes. The total time to defrost depends on volume, but it shouldn't take more than a half-hour to thaw the tomatoes via this method.
Run the container or freezer bag under warm/hot water to loosen the frozen cherry tomatoes. Important: if you're defrosting a Mason Jar, your only option is to do this in the fridge and allow it to defrost overnight.
Pour the cherry tomatoes into a pot and place it on low-medium heat on the stove.
Add a little water to the pot (a tablespoon or two should be fine.)
Heat until the cherry tomatoes have defrosted. Stir occasionally. Use them in your recipe as needed.
