    How do you use your surplus tomatoes from your garden?

    I've got a whole bunch of extra tomatoes from the garden this year. I'm not quite sure what to do with them before they go bad. What do you use your extra tomatoes for?

    A local food kitchen or food bank would like your extra tomatoes. Old folks in the neighborhood who can't garden any more will appreciate tomatoes.

    You could can them for the winter when you won't have fresh tomatoes. I personally don't know how to can anything but the Internet must be full of places that will explain how to can tomatoes. I remember the canned tomatoes that a friend of mine used to make and they tasted just as good in the middle of winter as they did when they were first picked.

    I had a bunch of extra tomatoes last year.  What I did was I cut them in half, placed them on a baking sheet, sprinkled salt, oregano, garlic powder and pepper over them along with a drizzle of olive oil.  I baked them at 400 degrees for about 40 minutes.  Then I froze them and used them in various recipes calling for tomatoes like soup and spaghetti sauce.  They freeze really well.
