Freezing tomatoes.

Yesterday, I wrote about gardens and freezing/canning your food. As you know, tomatoes are one of the best fruit/vegetables for you..( some call them a fruit, I call them a vegetable). When you get so many tomatoes and you don't know what to do with them..My mother would just wash and core them, put them in freezer bags and freeze..She wouldn't take the skins off or do anything else to them. In winter, if you want to make sauce/soup with them. Cook them down and put them through the food mill..that is all you have to do. I will take the tomato sauce, put it in a large pot and in a pan fry up sweet sausage, cook one pepper/onion, put in your own seasonings, I use basil/oregano, salt/pepper/little sugar and let it cook into a wonderful soup, when near the end of cooking, I will add some parm. cheese. Then cook up separately a bag of tortellini and as you serve the soup, put some in the bowl..Serve with a nice bread..Now let me ask you, is there anything easier? I have to admit, each time I make the soup, I do something different, maybe add corn, kidney beans..be creative..Folks this is called "comfort food" and it makes a person very happy..
This is what my blog is about...Be happy and try and have as much fun as you can..I know we all have tough times, but I want to give you a little joy.
Till next time, keep looking up..
