What to Do if You Really Hate Tomatoes

Can tomatoes be frozen, and what is the procedure?

Absolutely. The procedure is as follows: wash them thoroughly and pat them dry. Place them on cookie sheets and pop them in the freezer. Finally, throw them out either before or after thawing.

Freezing causes the cell walls in the tomato to burst, leaving you with a soggy mess when thawed. You can peel and transform your tomatoes into a sauce or a puree that can be frozen, but don't bother to freeze them whole.
