Freezing Fresh Tomatoes
It’s almost September and the tomatoes are ripening faster than we can eat them. I Usually pressure can my tomatoes. This year I don’t have the time to drag all the equipment out. I decided to preserve my tomatoes the easy way by freezing them. If you have the extra space in your freezer then this is the way to go. I was able to put up two cases in a few hours. All tomatoes get a mushy texture whether you freeze them or pressure can them. I like to either thaw them or just pop them frozen into the recipe.
Remove skins (read how here) and quarter the tomatoes, I fill a big pot.
Scoop the tomatoes into plastic bags. I used freezer style quart sized bags. Remove the air from the bags before sealing and freeze. They stack very nicely in the freezer. You’ll have your garden tomatoes all winter long.
