I have heard that you can just put whole tomatoes in the freezer and use them to cook later. I have also heard that the skins can get tough. I decided to spend a little bit of time preparing the tomatoes now, so when I use them I just have to dump them from the bag.
Step One- Blanching
The first thing you do is blanch the tomatoes. This makes it really easy to take the skins off.
Wash your tomatoes & start a pot of water boiling. Prepare a bowl with ice water.
Place the tomatoes in the boiling water for about 30 seconds, then use a slotted spoon to put the tomatoes into the bowl of ice water.
After blanching, the tomatoe skins will peal off with very little effort.
