Freezing Tomatoes -A How To

How to freeze tomatoes from your garden:
1. Harvest tomatoes at peak ripeness. I like a round, red variety best for this.
2. Wash well.
3. Remove green tops.
4. Dice into 1/4 inch cubes.

5. Cover a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
6. Spread the tomatoes over the paper in a single layer.
7. Place in the freezer until frozen solid.
8. Label a zip-top freezer bag with Tomatoes and the date.
9. Remove cookie sheet from the freezer.
10. Working quickly, transfer the tomatoes from the sheet to the bag.
11. Seal the bag, pressing out all the air, and place in the freezer.
12. Repeat as many times as desired. You can put fresh batches in the
same bag if you don’t fill it the first time around.
13. Use by removing as many cubes as you want and replacing the bag in
the freezer.

Use in recipes that call for heating the tomatoes.
