My dad got too much rain on his garden, but I don't know if he had any exploding tomatoes. He did say that a few of his watermelons cracked open after he picked them and he thinks it was due to the extra rain.
Picking them and letting them ripen inside sounds like a good plan. I ended up with 11 bags of frozen tomato pulp (2 cups per bag). I had hoped for more, but the last ones I was given got ripe at warp speed and I had to discard many of them.
I was going to mention Fried Green Tomatoes, but I see that others beat me to it! I know it wouldn't be exactly the same, but I wonder if you can oven-fry them like other veggies?
