3. Tomato Tip

If you find yourself with an abundance of tomatoes from
your garden (or great prices at the farmer's market) try
freezing them. They will not be suitable for slicing, but
their flavor will be better than canned when used in soups,
stews or sauces. Remove the stems and place them whole in a
plastic freezer bag (after rinsing and drying). You can
also chop them and puree them in a food processor before
freezing. Add some fresh chopped basil to a few of the bags
for a ready to cook Italian-style sauce base.
Remove the stem top and cut them in half. Place them in a roasting pan (cut side up) and drizzle them with a little oil. Roast them (uncovered) at 300 for 2 hours. Allow them to cool, place in plastic bags and freeze. They will be great in winter soups, stews, casseroles, pasta sauces and chili.
