How to Freeze Tomatoes

Sharing is caring!

I wanted to share How to Freeze Tomatoes for long term storage so that you can preserve all those wonderful tomatoes that are so abundant this season. I like to Can them to save on freezer space but this year there seems to be a shortage of canning lids & supplies. I used all I had left canning green beans. So I decided to freeze the tomatoes that I had before they ruined. It’s a very easy process.  

I love using the tomatoes that I have preserved in my Paleo Beef Chili. So Yummy! 

Tomatoes

Ingredients:

  • Tomatoes (Organic preferably)

Directions to Prepare Tomatoes:

  • Wash tomatoes, put in a large stainless steel bowl.
  • Bring a pot of water to boiling.
  • Drop tomatoes in one or two at a time (can pour over all tomatoes but tomatoes start cooking & I think you lose too much of the juice)
  • As soon as the tomato skin starts to crack, remove tomato, peel & core. (the skin practically slides off)
  • Add tomatoes to hot water as needed. It only takes about a min. or two before they are ready. 
  • After tomatoes are peeled & cored you can chop or quarter (I prefer to chop mine.) and put in large pot & bring to boil.
  • Let boil for 2-3 minutes stirring occasionally.
  • Remove from heat & let cool. To Speed up the process, you can set the pot in ice water. (I fill my sink with ice water to do this.)
  • Once tomatoes have cooled, use ladle or measuring cup to fill bags. (Allow enough space for expansion when freezing.)
  • Write date on bags & put in Freezer.
