Thank you for your question.

Yes, you can safely freeze tomatoes and fresh salsa. The directions for freezing tomatoes can be found in our Freezing Vegetables fact sheet. There is also a Salsa: From Garden to Table fact sheet with some recipes and canning directions. You could also freeze this salsa, the same as you would freeze fresh chopped tomatoes.

You can contact the Hancock County OSU Extension Office at 419-422-3851 if you have additional questions.
