Freezing Green Tomatoes to Make Relish Later?

Can you grind up green tomatoes and freeze them to make relish later? I have several and don't have the time right now to make the relish I want to use them in. I am hoping I can freeze them to use in a few weeks.

You can freeze them,but keep in mind that they will longer be crunchy.They will be soft. Make sure when using freezer bags take the access air out of the bag before sealing!

Freeze, absolutely! Remove the "core", slice, lay slices on wax paper on a cookie sheet, pop into the freezer, when frozen, put into a zipper bag (I double) stack in the freezer.

These work good to fry up, but I wouldn't use them in relish, but I have food texture issues and to me, they are not right for the relish. They are not quite as snappy as when fresh. I guess frying gives the snap back to them. Does that make sense?

Rinse the tomatoes and freeze whole. Then when you take them out rinse under the faucet and the skins will slip off. I did that this summer and made sauce when the weather cooled off.

Freezing fruits and vegetables changes the texture because it breaks down the cell structure. If you use previously frozen green tomatoes for relish, the relish won't have a crispy texture.

Not only that, but it might seem watery, because ruptured plant cells release their water.

There are several different ways to freeze green tomatoes. First off you can just put them in a zip log bag and freeze them whole. Second, you can cut the core out of them, slice them up, and freeze them on a cookie sheet then put in a zip lock bag. Just keep in mind the tomato has a lot of liquid in them and the texture will change after freezing. If you want to make a relish with them the texture might not be the same as when they are fresh. Normally when I freeze tomatoes it is for frying or sauces.
