Tomato Tips

  1. No time to make preserves? Wash and place plum tomatoes in freezer bags for use later in sauces and soups all winter long. When you are ready to use your frozen tomatoes simply pour boiling water over the frozen tomatoes and the skins will easily come off. Next core and remove seeds either by hand or using a food mill. Purée and enjoy the taste of summer.
  2. A customer gave us this great tip worth passing along: Tomato skins are full of nutrients. Instead of discarding organic tomato skins lay them on a parchment-lined baking sheet and dry them in the oven  at 200˚F for 2-3 hours. Take the desiccated skins and process them into a fine powder using a coffee grinder, food processor or blender. This is great for intense flavour in soups and stews.
