Remember the green tomatoes?

12 days before I wrote this post, I brought in all of our green tomatoes.  They have been ripening alarmingly fast and we have bravely eaten as many as is reasonable, but I didn't want them to go to waste.  So, I blanched them in boiling water, slipped off the skins and stuffed them into freezer bags.  Here they are all ready to go into the bags.  As you can readily see, they are not quite the quality of those picked ripe from the vine, but they will still be wonderful in soup.


Here they are in the bags!


And here is all that is left.  I was hoping they would last longer so we'd have some for the holidays, but it's not to be this year.





Definitely worth doing.  :)
