They use it on pastas, meatloaf, stews... after they've put their own touches and twists to it of course!

I found this handy tomato conversion chart for recipes grown from your garden:
2 1/2 pounds fresh tomatoes equals 3 cups chopped and drained fresh tomatoes.1 (16-oz) can equals 2 cups drained tomatoes or 1 cup undrained tomatoes.1 (28-oz) can equals 3 cups undrained or 2 to 2 1/2 cups drained tomatoes.1 (35-oz) can equals 3 cups undrained or 2 to 2 1/2 cups drained tomatoes.25 to 30 cherry tomatoes equals 2 cups chopped tomatoes.1 (6-ounce) can tomato paste equals 3/4 cup.An average bushel of tomatoes weighs about 53 lb (25 kg). When quartered and canned, this quantity of tomatoes will yield 15 to 20 – 1 large jar. You’ll need 2 ½ to 3 lb (1.2 to 1.4 kg) fresh tomatoes per 1 large mason jar.

Mu wife and I have had our first season of growing veg for the table in separate, layered beds, containing layers of soil, newspaper, compost and peat. The worms are supposed to do the "Digging-in" so my back should be saved. We have had some sugar-snap peas, lettuces and strawberries and I am still waiting for celery, onions, garlic and vegetable spaghetti, but I don't hold out much hope...
We have been here for 15 years and only mowed the lawn before now, but with the cost of everything going through the roof, we decided to augment out food bills by growing some vegetables. We are pure novices at this and any help anyone can offer would be gratefully received.
