Step by Step Guide on How to Freeze Tomatoes

There are a few steps in how to freeze tomatoes. It's a very easy way to keep many tomatoes on hand for the times in which you need to whip up a fresh juice, or if you want to try out one of the many recipes that call for chunks of tomatoes. Yes, you can get tomatoes in a can, but why? Tomatoes aren't expensive, especially at certain times of year, or if you live in a region that grows tomatoes, and that doesn't get cold much. They taste so fresh and so wonderful, and they are easy to keep. As a matter of fact, how to freeze tomatoes really isn't that involved of a process at all.

Step 1

All you need to do is to first wash off your tomatoes. You should of course cut off the green stems. Then wash off the dust and the dirt under cool water. When you've done this, cut them into halves lengthwise. Then you want to drain them in a sieve.

Step 2

All you have to do is to squeeze them in your hands. The juice and the seeds will run off. Then you take the squeezed out halves, and then cut them some more if you want to. (the tomato juice and seeds can be added to a fruit or vegetable drink so as not to waste)

Step 3

Next, you can either put them in a vacuum sealed bag or a freezer bag. Try to get as much air out of the freezer bags as possible, so that the tomatoes don't freezer burn. Store the bags at the back of the freezer. Make sure that you are storing them in the coldest part, so that they don't defrost. That's the long and the short of how to freeze tomatoes.

Some ideas on using frozen tomatoes
You can then use each bag for when your recipe calls for them. Some ideas to use them are - put them into a recipe that calls for chunks of tomatoes, use them frozen as an ice cube in drinks or you could thaw them, put them in a blender, and then use them for tomato juice. If you want to make a cold tomato based salsa to go with your juices and smoothies, you could take the frozen chunks of tomato, and then put them in a blender with your seasonings. This would produce a nice cold frozen salsa.

When you know how to freeze tomatoes, you can do all sorts of things with them. You be able to do fun things, like drive out of town to a farmer's market, and then buy tomatoes by the bushel. You won't have to worry about your tomatoes going bad, because you now know how to freeze tomatoes. You won't have to worry about them being gone at the store or the prices of them rising up, because you will have plenty of them stored in your freezer.
