    Default Did you know you can freeze tomatoes?


    Leave them whole or chop them and place them in a plastic bag or air
    tight container and store them in the freezer. When they are thawed they
    won't be suitable to eat raw, but they are great for use in your
    favorite recipes. They taste better and are more healthy than canned
    tomatoes from the store. Also a thrifty way to use extra tomatoes from
    your garden!

    We freeze our romas whole. Take out of the freezer and let thaw then
    make a slice in the skin from top to bottom, pinch the skin and it
    comes rightr off.

    I used to do peel and freeze the extra tomatoes from the garden, but
    storebought canned tomatoes have gotten so good I don't bother anymore.
    But I do make homemade salsa and can it. It's simple to make and
    better than any I can buy (PaceŽ Medium used to be good but they ruined
    it about 10 or 15 years ago when they made it thicker and less spicy.)
    In an emergency, I can buy whole peeled tomatoes at Sam's Club for less
    than $3 for a 8 pound can, and buy fresh jalapeņos and onions from the
    store and make a decent salsa. In that case I have to either add some
    homegrown jalapeņos from the freezer or a big spoonful of cayenne pepper
    to get the heat right.

    This time not such a grand idea... may as well make tomato sauce from
    the gitgo and freeze that.

    I don't know if fresh tomatoes are more healthy than canned tomatoes, but
    they sure do taste better. I use canned tomatoes sometimes but they sure
    don't taste very good when eaten plain.

    Definitely would taste better than the canned tomato sauce.
    On the other hand, as I also like chopped tomatoes in my spaghetti sauce,
    I'll often chop up extra tomatoes and freeze in a container to use for that
    later.

    I plan to make a large batch sometime in the next few weeks. My local veggie
    stand sells fresh picked at one price. They also sell reduced price tomatoes
    that have been sitting several days and you have to use those immediately.
    These are what I buy for my sauce, plus an immediate tomato sandwich or
    two.

    Canned can be more healthy but they are not more healthful.

    You've made my recipes? You've tasted my cooking? You're not paying
    attention -- I am a boring cook. I don't cook fancy and I like most
    vegetables unadorned with anything besides a little salt and pepper, and
    maybe a little butter. In other words, KMA.
