Hi, everyone.
I was wondering. I heard from somewhere that tomatoes don't freeze well?
Is that true? Because I am doing a science fair project (again). Or else, what plants, fruits, or vegatables are slightly or somewhat immune to cold freezes. Since here it's summer, I'm planning to use the freezer in our house. PLease, any tips or pieces of advice would be MOST APPRECIATED!!!

Shuuki,

Go right ahead and freeze them, but pre-treat them first by dropping them into boiling water until the skin splits, then run them under cold water and peel the skins off. You can freeze them whole or you can then dice them or even puree them before freezing.

Good luck,
Julianna

Julianna,
I'm actually testing to see if they freeze slower or don't freeze at all compared to other fruits such as apples and oranges and peaches.
But THANKS A LOT for how to properly freeze tomatoes!
