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

Ingredients

tomatoes

Directions Step-By-Step

1
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.
2
Then use the tomatoes to make your favorite tomato sauce or soup.
3
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!
