When frozen tomatoes are thawed they do not remain solid and are not suitable for sandwiches or salads. However, frozen tomatoes are a delicious addition to cooked dishes such as chili.

Wash tomatoes under cool running water.

Slice an "X" on the bottom of each tomato with a small utility knife.

In a large saucepan bring water to a rolling boil.

Fill a large mixing bowl with ice cold water.

With a large spoon, place tomatoes in boiling water for 30 seconds to loosen skin.

Remove tomatoes after 30 seconds, place directly into cold water to stop the cooking process.
Core the tomatoes by removing the stem with a paring knife.
Peel away the skin, being careful not to injure the flesh of the tomatoes.
Tomatoes can be frozen whole, chopped or sliced. Place tomatoes into a freezer bag, seal and freeze. It is best to use the tomatoes within one year. Be sure to label and date your freezer bag.

FYI...Tomatoes can be frozen whole straight from the garden. Whole frozen tomato skins will break when added to cooked dishes and can be removed easily.
