Green Tip of the Week

This week I am freezing tomatoes & peppers.  I wash the tomatoes. 

Drop into hot water then drop into ice water.

 The peeling will slid right off.  I quarter each tomato - place on a cookie sheet to freeze - then place in a sealed bag.

Frozen tomatoes work great for soups, stews, sauces, and sauted.

The peppers I wash then slice.  I then place the slices in a sealed bag and freeze.  They work great for sauteing. We love sauteed peppers with
Italian Sausages. I also use them in my meals that require me to saute the peppers.

They are very handy in a gallon sealed bag. I just open the bag - take out a hand full and reseal the bag!


  1. I love frozen veggies, and use them in soups, pizzas and more! It is a great way to save money when the harvest is huge.

  2. I want to get into doing things like this... although I just have to buy in bulk when they are on sale, no harvest for me!!

  3. I needed this! We grew tomatoes this year and I didn't know what to do with them! Thanks!

  4. Hmm, I've never thought about freezing tomatoes, thanks for the tip!
