On Sunday, a very generous family brought a huge bucket of tomatoes to share. After everyone had left the building, the bucket was still quite full, so the family sent us home with the tomatoes! Yay! I love having fresh tomatoes that can be saved for use during the fall and winter months! I usually just simmer them down and make crushed tomatoes for spaghetti or pizza sauce. I wanted to try something new, so I found the directions for making fire-roasted tomatoes. It's quite easy and these will be perfect to add into soups and stews!
Let the tomatoes cool slightly and remove the skins.
Pour into a large freezer bag and squeeze out as much air as possible.
Freeze for later or refrigerate and use within a few days.
