Tomatoes--a hint

Dorothy's Story

I read this hint and thought some others might find it interesting. I have no idea how well it works.



Directions Step-By-Step

Don't let tomatoes go to waste at the end of the growing season if you don't have time to put them up. Just wash them and freeze them in bags--cutting large ones into quareters--until you are ready to use them. The night before making a sauce or soup, transfer the bags to the fridge. The next morning, just put the tomatoes on a baking sheet and let them thaw to room temperature--after about an hour the skins will slip off.
Then use the tomatoes to make your favorite tomato sauce or soup.
I have not tried this but it sounds like something that would work..if you have the room to store the tomatoes in the freezer.

Great idea, Jeanne. I never thought about doing the green tomatoes too. I am hoping I get lots of tomatoes this season because we have been having nice hot weather and tomatoes love that. :)

I have frozen ripe tomatoes and green tomatoes this way. It's great for making red or green hot sauce.....just add the peppers and other ingredients.....

I freeze grapes and use them as ice in drinks (like white wine) or other beverages you don't want diluted by ice. I also freeze my bananas in the skins for Luscious Banana Nut Bread and I have started peeling then, putting them in a baggie and freezing them for smoothies. YUM!
