Freezing Tomatoes

Jeanie Rose
We outline three methods for freezing tomatoes. This is freezing tomatoes in slices.


  • 1 quart tomatoes


  • Wash the tomatoes and allow them to drain and dry.
  • Cut out the stem end and slice off the blossom end.
  • Slice the tomatoes into 1/3-1/2 inch slices.
  • Arrange the slices on a cookie sheet, one layer only. Do not overlap the slices.
  • Place in the freezer until the slices are solid, for about 2-3 hours.
  • Pop the slices loose from the cookie sheet with a spatula and place the slices in freezer bags.
  • Lay the bags on the cookie sheet. After a couple more hours in the freezer, these bags can be stacked on one another.
