Tomatoes In The Garden



Whomever told me, that I would have to babysit my tomato plants in my garden, and spend hours trimming, and pruning, was so ever wrong! I have literally done nothing to these tomato plants but water them. As you can see in the picture above, I have lots.

What should I do with all these tomato’s? I watched a few You Tube Videos on canning, and I also watched one that skipped the canning process, and did fermentation. Although the fermenting video seemed a lot easier, I decided to go with the route of my mother in law knows best method. If you know what I mean.

My mother in laws method, was to boil the tomatoes until the skins began to wrinkle, after I took out the center cores first of course.

For me, it took a while boiling the tomatoes until their skins wrinkled up like this.
After removing the tomatoes from boiling water, I let them cool so I could remove the skin.

What you end up with after removing the skin, is nice stewed like tomato’s that I simply put in freezer zip lock bags and placed in the freezer for later use.

Just an idea…

thanks for watching,
