An easy way to preserve the summery taste of fresh tomatoes for your favorite tomato sauce recipes.
Wash tomatoes and remove stem-end with a paring knife or strawberry huller.
Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add a few tomatoes at a time, cook for 30 seconds, and remove to a large bowl with a slotted spoon.
Allow tomatoes to cool until they can be easily handled. Halve tomatoes and clean out seeds with a spoon. If you do this over a bowl and strainer, you can save the juice.
Remove skins by squeezing pulp out and peeling off any remnants.
Spoon pulp and juice into freezer bags or containers. Freeze.
