What can you do with extra tomatoes that are past their shelf life? Instead of letting them spoil freeze that last tomato. It is easy to do and it don’t take very long to do. You just need a pot of boiling water and a small baggie.
I had several large tomatoes was close to spoiling and getting spots. It always bothers me to see food get wasted. Tomatoes are something that will freeze well and can be used in cooking. I like to add a small amount of tomatoes in some soups that I make. A small package of chopped tomatoes is perfect for that. You don’t have to thaw the small baggie, just open up and throw it in to the hot broth. A snack size baggy is perfect for a 1/2 cup to a cup of tomatoes.
Start with a large pan with boiling water. Take the pan off the heat after the water is in a full rolling boil. Gently put the tomatoes into the hot water. In a couple of minutes the skins on the tomatoes with be cracked. Remove the tomatoes and peel the skin off. The skin will be lose and will pull right off. Chop the tomato on a small chopping board and slide the chopped tomato and juice into a bowl. Continue until you have all the tomatoes chopped. Spoon them into small baggies and remove as much air from the bag before sealing. Lay flat while freezing.
I use mine up quickly because I make soup often and do plenty of scratch cooking so I don’t date the bag. But you should write the date on the package when freezing food.
