Thanks for the tips. I quartered them before freezing which was likely the prime cause of excess freezer burn. I don't know if I want to invest in a vacuum sealer -- yet, maybe this summers crop will convince me (always the optimist). There was a little room left in the freezer for other things. ;~)

My mom always had a big garden and canning tomatoes was a summer ritual, one I'd like to leave in the past. Yes, it's a hot, hot, hot job in August. I also have a fear of botulism.

My favorite way to eat them is to let them thaw, then mix them with fresh pasta. Having been frozen, this mix is more watery than fresh.
