Freezing tomatoes for later
I'm not a regular tomato grower or canner, but my SIL brought over frozen bags of tomatoes she'd been given by generous tomato growers last summer, and we made them into salsa. They peeled incredibly easily after being plunged into some hot water, and crumbled instantly when cut with a knife. SIL said her tomato prep time had never been so short. It was also nice to be canning in the middle of winter rather than in busy summer. Of course, saving tomatoes in the freezer takes up valuable space, but I was curious whether anyone else had tried it. It also gives you a chance to save up until you have enough fruit to work with. She purchased peppers,etc. which probably didn't help the final flavor, since they weren't fresh from a garden. But, we have plenty of dried peppers around to sprinkle in for additional zip. Anyway, just wondered what experience others have had.
