Oh boy! Out tomato plants have gone crazy and we have no less than 30 ripe tomatoes right now. I have already made homemade salsa, pasta sauce and bruchetta but now I am at a loss.

What would you do with them? HELP!

Get a dehydrator!  We made dried tomato slices last year, and then vacuum sealed them.  They are great on homemade pizzas.

We also cooked some of them down and made our own tomato sauce.

And if you don't have time to do all of them right away, put some in a brown paper bag, tape it shut and put them in the freezer until you have time to do them.  Then all you have to do is run them under warm water and the skins pop right off.

Pinkeeo, thanks for the great tip on freezing fresh 'maters! We've had a really cool (temp wise) spring/summer so our tomatoes are just getting started.

Doingitwrong:

You can also freeze tomatoes that have been peeled and blanched.  I canned some with just salt and lemon juice 2 years ago (see the Ball canning book) and they were terrific all year long!

Might I suggest gazpacho?  Roasted tomatoes topped with bread crumb and parmesan?

You can also hollow out the tomato and fill it with pasta salad.  Then you get to eat the pasta salad, but also the container it is in!  You can also fill them and bake them as you would stuffed pepper.

Oh!  I love stuffed tomatoes.  I cook up a little bit of ground buffalo with some red onions and garlic, add a little steamed rice and bake.
