an abundance of tomatoes / what to do?
Phyllis, a dear friend, grew up on a farm. She knows, in my opinion, absolutely everything about growing food. The tip she gave me was to not waste time with an excess of tomatoes. Normally I would blanch, peel, cut and freeze. Her suggestion to simplify this process is especially relevant when working with cherry tomatoes.
Wash and pulverize the raw tomatoes.
I store my tomato puree mixture in cardboard soup containers, obtained
via the Internet, 500 at a time.
When ready to use this mixture, simply thaw. These tomatoes can be used in salsa, salsas and soups.
