To freeze green tomatoes, wash them, remove the core, slice into 1/4-inch-thick slices and place in a container. Separate layers using freezer paper, and leave a 1/2-inch gap between the top layer and the container lid.

  1. Wash the tomatoes

    Gently rub each tomato while holding it under cool running water.

  2. Remove the core and slice tomatoes

    Using a paring knife, cut around the stem of the tomato and remove it. Cut the tomato into 1/4-inch-thick slices.

  3. Place the tomatoes in a container

    Place the tomato slices into a container that is appropriate for freezing. Separate tomatoes into layers with freezer paper. Leave a 1/2-inch gap between the top layer and the lid of the container.
