An Italian chef I saw on TV once said to put them on a baking sheet, freeze whole, then the skins will peel right off when you thaw them to use. I do the same with bell peppers, although it doesn't work as well with the skins. Works great on tomatoes, though. I always run them under hot water while still frozen and peel them while they're hard enough to handle easily.

I blanche in boiling water and peel the skins off, quarter and if feeling like I want the extra work squish out most of the seeds. Place in freezer bags and lay flat (cookie sheet) to freeze

I mix yellow and red tomatoes too-pretty and tasty!
