Should overripe tomatoes be canned?
Overripe tomatoes should not be canned because they lose acidity as they mature. Tomatoes with soft spots or decayed areas should not be canned. Use overripe tomatoes in products that will be frozen such as sauces, chili, etc. They may also be used in products that contain added vinegar such as barbecue sauces and ketchup.
