It seems as soon as we’ve planted that final tomato plant in the spring, we can’t wait to reap the rewards! Then, like magic, they all seem to come at once. Despite all the fabulous recipes, after awhile we all get a little tomato overdose. My solution – I freeze them for use later during the fall and winter months. Just wash thoroughly, you can cut out the ‘stem’ if you choose, but it is not necessary. Place them in plastic bags and off into the freezer they go. They are great for making sauces, soups, chili, or any recipe that calls for crushed tomatoes and they couldn’t be any fresher.
