Freezing More Tomatoes

Curious as it seems, I just finished blanching, removing the skins and quartering these 8-pounds of tomatoes from our vegetable garden and placing them in quart-sized freezer bags for use this winter along with the others we had processed during the season.

Several weeks ago these were picked green due to a frost warning. I placed them on a paper-lined tray, covered them with newspapers and left them in the garage to ripen.

Remarkable is to be canning/freezing tomatoes on the 17 of November, but even more-so, all of them except for this one that is red, came from various red tomato vines. The marvels of nature never cease to amaze.
