Got a bumper crop of tomatoes from your garden this year? This super-easy sheet pan method is the easiest way to freeze tomatoes to use later in the year.
If using Roma tomatoes, core tomatoes and remove seeds. Chop into 1/2- to 1-inch pieces.
Line a large rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Arrange tomatoes in a single layer on baking sheet. Freeze 4 to 6 hours or until firm.
Transfer tomatoes to airtight containers or freezer bags. Freeze up to 2 months.
If desired, peel Roma tomatoes.
Add frozen tomatoes to soups, stews, and sauces. Because freezing alters the texture of the tomatoes, avoid substituting them for fresh tomatoes in recipes.
