When life gives you lemons, make lemonade. When your garden rains tomatoes, freeze them. Or can them.
You must all know by now that I am not into canning. Yet. I have two options with the abundance of tomatoes. Either freeze them or make different things and freeze. I didn't have time to cook something with them and then freeze. So, I just cut them up and froze. Many years back, I used to cut them and freeze them in ice cube trays. But now, I use my silicon muffin pan to do the job. Chop the tomatoes and fill the cups. Cover with a plastic wrap and freeze till solid. After they freeze, I pop them out and place all the frozen rounds in a ziploc and leave it in the freezer.
In winter, when fresh tomatoes are so expensive I use them. When I am making sambar or rasam, all I need is one or two rounds of these and we are good to go. This is home grown, but you don't have to grow tomatoes to do this. Towards the end of September, truck patches and farmer's markets have sale on bins of tomatoes. I have got 30 pounds for about 14 dollars. Buy them, chop them and freeze and use through out the winter.
