For now we need to process these babies so that we can make and can the sauce later. Tomatoes go bad quite fast so what we do is peel and freeze them. There is a very easy way to do this and it is a great job for two people - Camille and I have a system that makes it quick work!
You will need a pot of water (close to boiling), a bowl for ice water, another for the peels and final one for the tomatoes and a slotted spoon.
Once your water is ready you can start plopping your beauties in a few at a time; you are waiting for the skin to "pop" or "crack" open. Once that happens you immediately remove it from the water and drop it into the ice bath to cool off. Once cooled then you can easily peel the skin right off! Place all of your naked tomatoes in freezer bags and into the big chill until you are ready to use them! Stay tuned...canning season is right around the corner!
