Great Use for Bad Tomatoes - Freeze Em!

Good blog post on tomatoes - This is a great use for tomatoes that are cracked or are not perfect.

Step 1 - get a lot of bad tomatoes cheap - many CSA's will have tomatoes that are not good enough to get distributed, but still ripe and edible.

Step 2 - Strip the skin(dunk in boiling water for 20 seconds, then dump in ice bath, the skin will literally fall off.

Step 3 - Cut in half and de-seed/juice - you just want flesh.  If there are any badly bruised areas you can cut them out also.

Step 4 - Cool

Step 5 - Bag, suck the air out as much as possible

Step 6 - Freeze!

Great tomatoes for Winter and Spring cooking!
