Canning tomatoes

Post  TexasTracy on 6/29/2013, 3:26 pm

Is there any way to save the tomatoes that I have already harvested until I get enough to can?

Skin 'em and freeze what you have until you have enough to break out the kettle. Do you know how to peel the tomatoes?

I'd throw them in the freezer, whole, in a plastic grocery bag.

If at all possible I bake them down before freezing, I think the flavor is better.  Last year when I realized the freezer was a little too full for fall butchering I then took out a lot of bags of roasted tomatoes.  I ran them through the food processor semi frozen.  Heated up.  Packed into jars and hot water bath canned.  I put a teaspoon of lemon or wine vinegar into the jars to make sure it was still acidic enough.   It made heavenly spaghetti sauce.

The frozen tomatoes are really easy to skin as they thaw.  But I like the skin and when I realized that I was only skinning tomatoes from tradition I quit and no one has ever noticed.

+1 Last year the tomatoes that I roasted before putting up had tremendous flavor.

I have a recipe for oven roasted tomatoes so I guess I can do that and then freeze until I have enough to can. Awesome, thanks!
