Those with backyard gardens often face a dilemma: what to do with a bumper crop of tomatoes. It may seem like summer fruit all ripens at the exact same time, but that doesn't mean you need to eat it right away, or make a giant pot of time-consuming sauce. One thing you can do is grate tomatoes on the largest side of a box grater and freeze the juicy, pulpy mixture. The coarsely grated tomatoes can be frozen flat in freezer bags, and when you need fresh tomatoes for a sauce, soup or stew in the future, just retrieve the frozen mix and use right away.
