an abundance of tomatoes / what to do?

Phyllis, a dear friend, grew up on a farm.  She knows, in my opinion, absolutely everything about growing food.  The tip she gave me was to not waste time with an excess of tomatoes.  Normally I would blanch, peel, cut and freeze.  Her suggestion to simplify this process is especially relevant when working with cherry tomatoes. 

Wash and pulverize the raw tomatoes.

I store my tomato puree mixture in cardboard soup containers, obtained
 via the Internet, 500 at a time. 

When ready to use this mixture, simply thaw.  These tomatoes can be used in salsa, salsas and soups.
