All questions

I have a LOT of tomatoes, all different varieties (plum, cherry, slicing, heirloom, etc) from my CSA this week. What's the best way to preserve them, because I can't eat all this by myself. Can I throw them all together and create a decent sauce to freeze?

Blanch and peel them all. Leave the plum tomatoes whole, dice some of the slicers, puree the rest of the slicers with the cherry tomatoes. Can them all and you don't have to buy any canned tomatoes this year!

I'd make an heirloom tomato chutney with the others.
