CAN YOU FREEZE TOMATOES?

If you have an overabundance of tomatoes that you are not going to be able to eat before they go bad, you might want to consider freezing tomatoes as a way of preserving them.

Canning is one of the options that you can use to preserve tomatoes, but I learned that freezing tomatoes was even easier for me.

Blanching tomatoes by dropping them into boiling water for 60-90 seconds and, using a slotted spoon, transfer immediately into a bowl of ice water to cool.

HOW TO FREEZE TOMATOES

Using a large spoon or measuring cup add the tomatoes to freezer storage bags. Pint or quart sized freezer bags work best.
