Tomatoes All Year Long
The time is ripe to preserve the bounty of tomatoes for the cold months ahead. To freeze tomatoes, begin by putting tomatoes in boiling water and when the skin splits, remove tomato from the water with a spoon and remove the skin. Then quarter tomatoes. Place quartered tomatoes in a pan and heat tomatoes. Remove pan from stove and let tomatoes cool. Then package in freezer bags or freezer containers.
