Tomatoes ripening

(1/1)

Roamer:
I have a Roma tomato plant full of green tomatoes. The first one has turned red. How do I store these that ripen before the others till I can have enough to make a sauce?

Greekman:
All in a single batch?

i would suggest waiting for batches to ripen well, squash/blend them and put to the freezer. Then cook the all together

Stwood:
Yes. Bag it and freeze it.

But if you want it as fresh, refrigerate it. It may last around 10? days.

Just cut up that first tomato and put it on a taco, or your salad, or sandwich.  Romas are good eating fresh too.  After a winter of no fresh tomatoes, the flavor is just fantastic to go and realy load up on using fresh tomatoes !

No use thinking about preserving tomatoes until you are later in the season and have a bunch, you preserve excess and right now you do not have more than you should be eating fresh.

ANd, I can all my tomatoes for the year, but I can excess.  When tomatoes are ripe, I use fresh tomatoes for pasta sauce, for pizza, or in soup etc... it is alot of work to can so always use fresh instead of canned during tomato season
