Question by FLhazel79: I need to substitute grape tomatoes for standard tomatoes in a recipe?
My recipe calls for 4 medium tomatoes coarsely chopped. How many cups of grape tomatoes would that be? Thanks!

Best answer:

Answer by Jedi Jan
Although I have not heard of “grape” tomatoes before I guess they are the same as our “cherry” tomatoes. I would hazard a guess at about 3-4 cups, but they would not include as much fluid as regular ones, although you could add a paste also. It would seem a bit wasteful though as the special varieties are usually more expensive. I just bought a kilo of regular (small) tomatoes which cost me $ 5.45 (AU), about 60c each. You could always purchase a bottle of pre-chopped tomatoes; for cooking they are just fine.

  9. Jared is stylin with them sunglasses on

  10. Jared – I’ve noticed that I have better luck with starting heirloom seeds
    for tomatoes in trays first, potting up once and when they get about 6″
    plant them in the ground. Just my personal experience

  11. Ok no spaces…just add the worldwide web dot

  12. nice chat!

  13. Jared I waited for this to start but nobody showed up. Why don’t you setup
    a Google+ page for JandJAcres so you can post events that people can get
    reminders of. I mostly avoid Facebook.

  18. Thanks for all the information. Appreciate your knowledge.

  19. I know the rule of thumb is to start them indoors. I am just looking for
    the easiest way to do things with the least amount of interaction on my
    part. If I can, I hope to plant them once, not twice.

  26. 3-4 cups and your going to have alot of tomato skin and little flesh. Consider boiling them for 20 seconds the skins will easily peel.
