Processing tomatoes for a rainy day
One of the big challenges in growing what you eat is the seasonal shift which precludes growing certain vegetables all year long. Refrigerated transport and hot house growing as well as the obscene practice of shipping produce from one hemisphere to the other has spoiled us with out of season fruit and veges.
We are attempting to shift a portion of our harvest to the seasons when we can no longer just walk out and pick them ripe of the vine.
Drying and freezing
The simplest options for us at present are drying and freezing. These tomatoes will be frozen (as stewed pulp) for soups and pasta sauce.
