Although they will not have the same fresh taste, tomatoes can be frozen.
Before we start freezing the tomatoes, we must first choose the right tomatoes. They should be ripe, but not very soft. They should also have no injuries.
Usually, any variety of tomato can be frozen, but the Roma variety is the most suitable, because there is little water in it.
The main steps in freezing are the following: first, you must choose the right tomatoes. Then you have to wash and dry them.
The vegetables must be tightly packed in polyethylene or plastic containers, so that moisture does not evaporate during storage.
If you are going to freeze the tomatoes chopped, this should be done with a special knife with indentations on the blade.
Freezing should be done in small batches. You can store vegetables in the freezer for a maximum of one year.
If you are going to freeze chopped tomatoes, the variety should be fleshy.
Cut them into 8-10 mm thick slices. Put them in a tray in layers, each of which is separated by a piece of baking paper.
After 6 hours the tomatoes will be ready to be frozen.
