Default tomato "blossom end rot" what to do? (long)

OK, I've seen lots of posts here concerning blossom end rot, but didn't pay
enough attention. It wouldn't happen to me.

Question here is, what to do with infected tomatoes? It's too late to rip
out and replant, and may happen again anyway, but should those showing the
black bottom be picked (green) and disposed of?

Last year we had the same problem, maybe one out of six exhibiting the
problem. Same ratio this year it seems. Last year (since we only grow three
or four plants) we kept them all, and just cut out the black end before
eating them. Didn't seem to affect the taste any, and we could salvage more
than half of each bum one.

Go ahead, lay it on me, I know I should have paid more attention while
lurking here over the past couple of years.


Google on "blossom end rot" and follow a few of the excellent
university research links.

Then move to Google groups and look up past threads here.

What I was told
don't use too much nitrogen
water on a regular schedule

This should solve the problems
