Howard of Eat to Blog froze a few tomatoes last summer with the intention of using them in the winter. When he realized he didn't know how to use them, he experimented by grating them and using them in a pasta sauce. What does tomato snow taste like?
It tasted exactly like fresh tomato, but the temperature and texture of it was all different. The pink flakes liquified almost immediately on my tongue, leaving only the taste of tomato behind.
He adds that the frozen tomato flakes retain raw tomato flavor while eliminating the texture, a plus for those who hate the texture of raw tomato. Do you have suggestions for what to do with frozen tomatoes?
