I finally have a tomato harvest! I have to say that my garden did not produce nearly what I had anticipated. However, it is finally at the stage where our tomato harvest has outpaced our tomato eating!
I really don’t love canned tomatoes. It’s fine if you often eat chili or spaghetti, but our household doesn’t go that route often enough to make it worth the effort of the canning process. Plus, I would imagine that I am like most people in that I don’t plant nearly enough tomatoes that I have a huge harvest all at once. Since I don’t plan on canning weekly, freezing it is! I have two ways that I choose to preserve tomatoes in the freezer. The first is my super easy, super lazy way. I wash them, cut out the core, and store them in a gallon ziplock freezer bag. When we’re ready to eat tomatoes, I take them out and partially defrost them, peel the skins off and drop them into soups or chili. So. Easy.
