I hate to do this to you, but I’m calling it.
It’s time for soup.
Or at least time to make soup for your freezer. Multiply this recipe by as many tomatoes as you can get your hands on and freeze in pint jars with airspace on top for expansion. You’ll thank me in a few weeks.

You must have huge tomatoes!
Medium size, I’d say. They usually just about cover the bottom of a 9″ x 13″ pan, so if yours are smaller you could shoot for that.
