                                                      Lots of tomatoes to freeze today.

The first step is to blanch the tomatoes in boiling water for 3 minutes to loosen the skins so they can easily be removed.
The tomatoes now have their skins and core removed and they have been chopped ready to freeze or to make salsa. I added 2 finely chopped onions and 2 garlic cloves.

Some of the chopped tomatoes were made into salsa using Mrs Wages Salsa  Tomato Mix Medium and then frozen for later use as salsa or in soups. The remaining tomatoes were frozen for later use in making lasagna, spaghetti and other dishes requiring tomatoes.

                                                 Salsa-filled freezer bags ready for the freezer.
