RECIPE: boil tomatoes before freezing ?
No sure if this is the most appropriate forum to post this, BUT, I have lots of tomatoes that are fully ripe and I want to chop them up a bit and freeze them to add to soups and stews later this winter.
I've read that, the nutrient value actually INCREASES if you blanch them BEFORE freezing them..true or not?
Basically I am looking for the best procedure to freeze my fresh tomatoes for (1) the Maximum nutrition and (2) The best flavor.
