I’ve never experienced this particular kind of bounty before - A grew too many and gave them to B who left town and dumped them on me, and now I’ve got a full grocery bag of tomatoes that have got to have something done to them TODAY. They’re regular beefsteak eating tomatoes, variety unknown, but not sauce tomatoes.
I can can, I can freeze. Plenty of room in the freezer. Never made sauce from actual noncanned tomatoes before 'cause, well, never had this many. My garden just produces enough for me to eat! Can you make a good sauce with not-sauce tomatoes? I’m not going through all the effort of canning for something that isn’t great, I do that enough already. (Pear relish, I’m talking to you!) My first thought was to freeze them whole individually and then bag, but I bet that would be super-gross, right? Help, and help now - I’ll probably have to throw out some of these as it is already!
