May one freeze tomatoes? Yes. But what I mean is - after they are
defrosted are they edible?
The cannon balls they become may be used in stews and the like but, no good
as salad type as they become mushy on thawing.
Thank you. It was in the domain of saladification that my interest lay.
You might get away with it if you have a blast freezer (which I'm sure
you don't) that will freeze them faster than the ice crystals can form
and shred the cell walls. It's how they do strawberries and the like.
I seem to have missed this thread...
I used to freeze strawberries spread out on a tray so they didn't stick
together, then bag them up. I mostly used them in jelly - they cooled and
set the warm jelly around them and, while not quite the texture of the
fresh fruit, were a pretty good substitute in the winter.
I suppose you could do something similar with small (skinned) tomatoes in
