I have half a large can left, and it feels wrong to throw them away. Will freezing for use later be detrimental to the flavor/texture? Thanks!
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
Go ahead. Depending on what you want to do with them in the future, they may get a bit mushier in texture. Since they are crushed anyway, it shouldn't make any difference in, for example, a cooked sauce. I agree; no point in wasting food; just pack in zipper freezer bags for convenience.
Yes, you can. They'll be a little gooshier after you freeze them, but they should freeze just fine for up to a month. Just make sure to get as much air out as possible.
I like to blend them and freeze them in one cup portions. Add to sauces, soups and braises. Blending the tomatoes prevents a soft texture.
Thanks all! Into the freezer they go...
