Freezing Tomatoes

The tomatoes in our garden got a little out of control last week,

We put them in boiling water for a minute to loosen the skin.

Here are all the tomatoes with the skin ready to peel off.

This is what they look like up close.

Here are the peeled tomatoes. I just stuffed them in jars and poured there own juice over them and put them in the freezer.

Whenever I make a dish that calls for canned tomatoes I will get out a jar. They will be a little mushy so I will probably blend them before I put them in things.

Wow. How fulfilling this must be to have this done!

Next time you have too many tomatoes call me! I LOVE fresh veggies.

You are so good at using your fruits and vegetables instead of letting them rot. Way to go!

Wow Carla, those tomatoes are gorgeous. I'm motivated to garden next summer. There's nothing better than home grown tomatoes.

I have been using the tomatoes and the only way they work is to blend them and add them in things...other wise they are too mushy.
