Pre freezing tomatoes
Is it possible to freeze tomatoes as they start getting ripe then can them at a later date?
Jodi: I have not done this myself. My only concern is that when you defrost the tomatoes they will not have the same consistency. They will be mushy. So I suppose it depends on how you intend to use them. For sauces it might work fine.
Maybe someone else who has done this will comment on this question.
Some time later......
I've come back to edit this and say... I tried it and it works great! Really highly recommend freezing tomatoes for using in sauces.
Perfect if you are getting just a few tomatoes at a time and want to save them for when you have enough for a whole batch.
The plus is......when you thaw the tomatoes, no blanching needed to peel. So easy!
