Yesterday I blanched a bunch of tomatoes. We have so many tomatoes in our garden I just don't know what to do with them all. I sliced an x at the bottom of every tomato and I placed them in boiling water for 30 to 60 seconds. I then put the tomatoes in ice cold water for about 10 seconds. You then can easily peel off the skin starting at where you sliced the x. The tomatoes were placed in a Ziploc freezer bag and put in the freezer. This should last a very long time in the freezer before they go bad. I will probably have to do this with more tomatoes because they just keep coming in from our garden. It's nice to have a lot of produce, but it sure is a lot of work to keep up with it this year.
