Frozen Tomatoes

Heidi NawrockiThe weather last summer wasn't good to our tomatoes. We would get a few here and there, but never enough at one time to can. We still wanted some tomato goodness over the winter, so we froze a few whole.

We washed them and froze them initially on cookie sheets. This helped to keep them from sticking to one another in a locked zipper plastic bag. We then threw them in the freezer for a later date. Well, today was the later date.

The wonderful thing about frozen tomatoes is how easy it is to peel them! I ran some lukewarm water over them and the skins just fell off. And the smell took me back to last summer in the garden. Just what I needed after transplanting 36 tomato seedlings into larger pots.

I chopped the tops off and cut them into smaller pieces. I had a mix of Italian Heirloom, Amish Paste, Nebraska Wedding, and Gold Medal varieties.
