I have 6 cases of them in my kitchen. I'm eating them as a snack, sliced one up for a 2nd veggie last night. Gonna use it for tacos this week. But my kids don't eat tomatoes.

Can I make spaghetti sauce out of them? That way I can freeze it for later use.

Give me some ideas

They're the best for making sauce!  You can also make salsa with them.

Remove the stems and wash them.  Submerge in boiling water for no longer than 30 seconds.  Cut the stem end off and the skins should slip off fairly easily.  If they are too soft, cook them for less than 30 seconds.

Have a big pot of boiling water, toss one in at a time, take out when it looks like the skin is starting to peel, set it aside for a min til u can touch it, peel the skin off, and core it then into a freezer bag it goes, try and do the peeling and coring over a bowl so you can save the juice to add to the freezer bag

I am jealous!  I wish I had so many tomatoes!  Yep, blanch and freeze.  That's what I'd be doing!  That way they can be used in various things like sauces, veggie soups, etc.
