Lots of tomatoes

kalimiller posted:
So I have TONS of tomatoes coming in from my garden. I am eating them all the time - salsa, sandwiches, plain, salads, you name it. My friends are taking a lot of them and I still have a whole bunch. Does anyone have any sort of pasta sauce recipes or anything that I could make and freeze? Or ideas for what I can do with them?

Hi Kali
I seeded and peeled some tomatoes and froze them to make pasta sauce later .
the way to peel them is to stick a fork into stem end and cut a cross into blossom end dunk in boiling water for a few seconds the the peeling is easier peel discard skins and seeds to remove seeds just make holes in the sections of tomato remove seeds freeze the remaining pulp. then the tomato can be used for sauces or salas Later .

Hi Kali, try this one..... this recipe calls for Roma Tomatoes which are on the whole designed for sauces because they are more meaty and less "juicy" . If your tomatoes are the juicier, salad or table tomatoes, like beefsteaks or the reg round varieties, I'd suggest first cutting them in half and scooping out most of the juicy seeded parts and just leaving some and the "meaty" sections to make this with . It'll cut down on cooking times. BE AWARE though, tomatoes cannot be cooked in Cast iron, copper or thin aluminum pans. Use something like a dutch oven, ceramic coated or heavy aluminum alloy pot Otherwise the tomatoes will absorb the metalic taste of the pans in which you cook them and make them taste spoiled .

tomato paste one small can also water judgment call again
if it is too acidic when I taste I add a pinch of sugar that a judgment call
