Freezing Whole Tomatoes

I have a garden that has produced lots of tomatoes. I just don't have time right now to can them all. Is there any way I can freeze the tomatoes whole until I get around to using them in my soups? If this is possible, how do I do it?

Freezing Whole Tomatoes

Best use of freezer space is to put tomatoes in blender, whip, pour into freezer bags without air, zip. Fill only till it will lay flat, then you can stack them like books and they won't topple. Freeze flat. Stack when all are frozen. Also store on end, like books. Later, toss into kettle with a few cups of water, cover and heat till all are thawed, then continue to cook till desired thickness. Can in pressure cooker. Recipe directions. You can use these freezer bags of tomatoes to make recipes needing tomato sauce also, or for tomato soup. (10/16/2005)

I used to freeze whole tomatoes. I just put them in a freezer safe bag, twist tie the top and place in the freezer. It is easy to take the skins off. Just take out of the freezer and put in some hot water a minute. Take out and slip the skin off. However whole tomatoes do take a lot of the room. Most of the time now, I just cut them up. Heat through, cool and freeze. (10/17/2005)

Freezing Whole Tomatoes

Boil a pan of water. Wash tomatoes and cut out stem base. Plunge the tomatoes into the boiling water. Remove from the water after about a minute. Submerge blanched tomatoes in cold water. The skin will split, and can be peeled off easily. Place three or four tomatoes in a quart size freezer bag and freeze. (10/17/2005)

I always freeze whole tomatoes, just wipe them off. I keep a bread sack in freezer and put ripe tomatoes in it. When it's full, I tie it up. When I need tomatoes in a recipe, I take out however many I want and the skin just come off in the hot liquid that I'm using. It's easy to pick off as it floats to the top (05/06/2006)
