How to freeze tomatoes so you can enjoy them whenever you want

 
Canned tomatoes are a timeless nutritional hero at the base of many of our most beloved recipes. You can buy canned tomatoes at the grocery store, but you can also make your own. If you find yourself with an abundance of fresh tomatoes, consider saving them so you can enjoy the taste of fresh summer tomatoes all year long. Here, we have planed how to freeze tomatoes, whole or cut, to reduce food waste and enjoy tomatoes at their best whenever you want.

How to freeze whole tomatoes 

We recommend blanching the tomatoes and peeling before freezing to save yourself trouble later. A small "X" incision before blanching makes the peeling process easier.

  •  Use a small knife to remove the stems from the clean tomato and cut a small "X" into the skin of the tomato. ("X" will cause the skin to peel off quickly.) 
  • Boil a pot of water.
  • Put the prepared tomatoes in boiling water for a short time (about 30 seconds should be enough), then rinse and put them in the water bath. 
  • When the tomatoes are cool enough, remove the skin.
  • Spread the pureed tomatoes in a single layer on paper and refrigerate for 2-3 hours. 

Next, transfer the tomatoes to an airtight container and return them to the freezer.

  Do you have to blanch tomatoes before freezing?

 No, you don't have to blanch tomatoes before their freezing, as long as you don't want Skins.

 How to use frozen tomatoes?

 Tomatoes change shape well in the freezer, so it's best to cook frozen tomatoes in soups, sauces and braises instead of feeding them. To use frozen tomatoes, you can thaw them overnight in the refrigerator, at room temperature for a few hours, or throw them directly into the pot or pan you are cooking with.
