I have been canning and freezing tomatoes prepared this way all my life(82) years. Just didn't know it had a fancy name. We never liked the abundance of seeds in dishes I made from home preserved tomatoes. This is the way!!!
I have been saving my summer tomatoes like this for many years instead of canning. Guess the seeds never bothered me. Blanch, peel, fill quart freezer bags with tomatoes and juice. No salt or other flavorings. Rough cut into quarters or eight's depending on tomato size. Freeze. One quart bag is close enough to a 28 oz can of tomatoes. Can use for beef stew, spaghetti sauce, chili, anything you would use canned tomatoes for. I thaw the quart bags in the microwave for 3 minutes. They're still pretty frozen. Slice the bag off and use a chef's knife to roughly slice the slightly thawed tomatoes on a cutting board inside a lipped sheet pan so the juice stays put. Put tomatoes and juice in whatever you had planned for them still slightly frozen.
My guys love fresh tomatoes, so I blanch and skin all the tomatoes they bring in. They eat as many fresh as they want and the rest are ready for the freezer.
Very helpful.We get tomatoes at the dollar store very cheap because some are misshapen or have a blemish.I did about 15 tonight and put it in the freezer.Hubby makes a mean chili so I saved him some time.And mess.Thx Chef.
