The last of our tomato harvest...so sad :( We won't eat those all before the go bad so I decided to stew and freeze them. We don't have a canner so freezing is the next best option!
First boil a large pot of water and add tomatoes. Boil for around 5 minutes and then blanch the tomatoes in cold water. The skin should just peel right off.
Add the peeled tomatoes to a food processor and blitz as smooth or chunky as you like.
I added in my herbs then too to save on chopping! I used parsley, basil and oregano.
In a large pot add the tomato mix and simmer on a low heat for around 30 minutes.
If you are making a base for a sauce then you can add in salt, pepper & garlic etc.
Once mixture is cooled you can add to sterilized jars, seal and freeze.
I used Mason Jars because they are made to withstand heat and cold.
All the herbs from the garden I picked, washed and chopped and then freeze in ziplock bags until I'm ready to use them.
