Hi David!!

 

I never tried that with tomatoes.

 

What do you do with them after sealing---Fridge---Freeze???

 

How long do they last & what are they like after whatever you do with them?

I freeze them. Normally I would blanch and peel before freezing/ This time i am trying skin on. I use them in cooking. The same as you would use canned tomatoes.

Happy smoken.

OK---Dang-it----Thought maybe you had some way of saving a fresh tomato without ruining it. I only like tomatoes fresh, and mostly in a BLT.:biggrin:

LOL----Yeah, you sucked me in on that.

 

I saw how nice they looked in your packages, I thought maybe you found a way to keep them like that.

 

Oh well----Back to the drawing board!!

Yes it is Martin. When I first bought it I ordered 4000 bags of different sizes from Lisa. I thought that would be a life time supply. I had been using a food saver. I use to drag out the food saver. Now my Vacmaster has a home on the kitchen counter. The up front price was  up their. Now it is free after you figure the price of the bags and the amount of food I have saved

Happy smoken.

I sure do like my homegrown fresh mators. This is the best I can do to make the winter.

Happy smoken.
