tomatoes too many


I have a problem; everyone should have this problem. I have more tomatoes than we can eat before they turn bad. I have a pot of water on the stove so I am going to scald them and slip the skin then put them in freezer bags and freeze tomatoes. I know the vines will stop producing and sister will stop bring me tomatoes by like she did yesterday and then I will be thinking Oh, I wish I had some tomatoes.
I buy canned tomatoes every month and never get them for less than a dollar so if I freeze these I will save 5 dollars for something else.

I am beginning to get a few ripe ones from my vines. I used to freeze them in containers all the time. I remember reading in a county agent's book to mash them down so the juice covered them when freezing. Mine never lasted very long before I used them all up! Yours look so good. Have a good week.

Our freezer is level full with the beef we just butchered, so I'll have to can any extras.
