Freezing Roma Tomatoes

Anonymous added on July 27, 2011 | Answered

I was wondering if I could freeze my roma tomatoes. I only have a few that are ripe and am waiting for more to make sauce. If I can freeze them, what is the best way to do it? Should I put them in the freezer whole? Peeled?

Tomatoes are easy to freeze. Wash them well, put them on a cookie sheet, freeze and bag them up. When thawed they get a little "mushy", but if you treat them like a "boil in bag", thaw in hot water. You will be able to squeeze and most of the tomato pulp will separate, leaving seeds etc behind. Makes doing homemade sauce, juice, catsup, etc super easy! Freezing is also a great way to handle the extra you may be dealing with later as the tomatoes ripen. I normally can a bunch and by that time I'm tired of looking at them, so just pop them in the freezer and use them during the winter. So yummy, and the smell is wonderful!! Good luck!
