Any ideas for cooking up lots of tomatoes? I have been given 2 bags of lovely mixed ones, and as much as I love them in salads, even I am at a loss! I was thinking soup or chutney or even ketchup.

You can't beat a nice tomato chutney to get you through the winter evenings, lovely with a jacket potato and cold meat or with cheese and biscuits. Never made my own ketchup but it would make a nice change.

You could make a roasted tomato sauce for pasta, something like this.

I am sure the pasta sauce can also be frozen so you could make loads and then freeze in batches.

Slow dry them in the oven and then cover them with olive oil.

My mouth is watering already.

OK list is:
Chutney, Roasted pasta sauce and dried with olive oil.

Thanks all!

I roasted some cherry toms given to me in olive oil and chopped up garlic, we had them with a barbeque and they were absolutely heaven on a plate. The kids loved them too. They had gone all gooey and yummy and were devine. You could try making a pastry/pizza base and roasting the toms on top. Might try that myself.

make big batches of tomato sauce and freeze them. Save so much time in the future.

How do you stop them going all squishy in the oven?

You can't that's what makes them so gorgeous, it was a delicious goo of tomatoes, garlic and olive oil. It would have been devine on some rustic bread. Oh crikey I have got to go and get some toms now and make this tonight!
