Tomotoes

I have a billion baby toms. I'm open to suggestions - what the hell am I going to do with them all?

So far, it's been:
Bruchetta
Salsa (really good! will post my ideas here later)
Pasta sauce (handy serves in freezer)
Salads

Last year I made chutney. But we didn't eat it all. Though a jar of chutney could be a good christmas pressie for mum.
Yesterday, I should have left some sliced toms out there, and harnessed the power of the blazing heat and sun to dry them. Oh well. Live and learn.
I've been taking them to work too, and feeding my colleagues tasty home made toms from the fridge.

Any other ideas?

We have a steady supply of eggs now. I encouraged MrTops to make frittata and he's keen to make it again, but I felt as I was eating it that it really needed some tomato relish.

If you make some, I'll swap you some eggs for it.

Oh yeah... and some baby toms to go in the frittata would be cunning too.

Sounds good. More than happy to share the load. And if you _ever_ end up with spare eggses...

If there is space in the freezer make some tomato soups for winter, or some gazpacho for summer.

Juice them for bloody marys!

Creamy tomato sauces are always tasty.. I wonder how tomato ice cream or sorbet would go...

HA! that's funny.
There's not a lot of room in the freezer. then again, we do have another fridge...

tomato sauce, as in, the stuff you have with pies. I made a nice one earlier this year, it's sort of like a spicier thicker passata sort of thing which bears no relation to bottled tomato sauce. it IS good with pies though.

Your Mission, Tomato sorbet...you can add alcohol too if you need a "its a cocktail" justification.
