It took me less than an hour to get two ice cream pails of tomatoes into the freezer.
I washed, cored and slit an X on the bottom.
They went into the boiling water for 30-60 seconds just until the skin started to curl like this.
I put them into ice water and was able to slip the skins right off.
Then I chopped them up and put 2 cups into a ziploc freezer bag. It’s a good thing I did not have a salsa mix on hand because this pan would not have made it to the freezer. Freshly chopped garden tomatoes is a delicious smell. Yum Yum!!
Super easy way to take care of some extra tomatoes. These are great for adding to any hotdish, stew, or chili.
