How to use frozen tomatoes
Take as many as needed for the recipe out of the freezer bag. Do not let them thaw first or it will be a mushy mess! Rinse them with warm running water, the skin will come right off. Now they can be cut in to pieces, or be blended in a blender.
Frozen tomatoes will be more watery than fresh tomatoes, but are great for soups and tomato sauces.
