Do you prefer dried tomatoes or frozen? By February, we won't care. I love having a stash of tomatoes ready for winter. I didn't have enough for canning, so I froze some and dried some. For freezing, I blanched the tomatoes for about 2 minutes, peeled and stuffed them in quart size bags. Just the right size for stew or spaghetti sauce. For drying, I just sliced them up and put them in the dryer, inspired by Whole.New.Mom's post from a few weeks ago. They turned out great! I also got another batch of dried pears and peaches in.
Aren't they gorgeous?
