Can you freeze tomatoes?

Absolutely. My Aunt taught me to wash them well, dry them and put the tomatoes in the plastic freezer boxes. When you need tomatoes for soups, stews, and sauces just defrost. The best part is the skin slides right off once they thaw, so you don't even have to peel them. I've done this for years especially with plum tomatoes and then I can make fresh pasta sauce year-round. (07/27/2009)

I always peel them before freezing. I peel them, dice them and micro for about 5 minutes . then put them in zip lock bags and freeze. I use zip lock bags so they lay flat in freezer and do not take up much room. By peeling them before hand, I just dump in any dish I am making. (07/27/2009)

When you take the whole frozen tomatoes out of the freezer, just run hot water over each tomato, and the skin slips right off. Sometimes I let them thaw before using, as they get a little watery. (07/27/2009)

Yes you can. My mom froze tomatoes for many years as I do too. I add some salt although it's not necessary. I've froze them raw and cooked. I think cooked tastes better.You also have to squish them up like you would with canning. I use plastic bags so I can get most of the air out. I don't know how long they will last as we use ours up within 4 months. They'll be watery but it all cooks out. (07/27/2009)
